At DLIS-NBU, the sense of mission and society infuses the department and program. It’s a vibrant crucible of intellectual endeavour, research, knowledge creation, learning, and teaching. Here, results matter and creativity flourishes. We’re banded together by a culture that strives for excellence, but further reinforces us in our effort. Our faculties are unified by common goals of education and research, but each develops leaders and positively impacts the world in its own way. The Department has a special responsibility to champion intellectual traditions that have defined educated men and women since the dawn of civilization. We do more than deliver a body of knowledge to our students — we expand their humanity. By teaching young people to appreciate what is beautiful in art, society, and nature, we help them to discover what makes life truly worth living.
