A Favorite Quote

Liberty is meaningless where the right to utter one’s thoughts and opinions has ceased to exist. That of all rights, is the dread of tyrants. It is the right which they first strike down.

–Frederick Douglas

More Information

The library collects materials that are directly related to the courses and anticipated student research projects. Emphasis is placed on acquiring materials that represent diverse viewpoints to broaden knowledge beyond personal biases and the echo chambers of major media. By providing a broad range of viewpoints on subjects the students have the opportunity to learn about others, and develop the skills to discuss difficult topics civilly with individuals who do not mirror their beliefs. As the world we live in becomes more politically divided and less tolerable to those who think differently, this will become ever more important.
