experiences made possible by academically and professionally qualified and skilled instructional faculty and
staff, opportunities for contextual learning, state-of-the-art facilities, beautiful surroundings, and effective

successful relationship between engaged learners and outstanding instructional faculty and staff.

STUDENT CENTERED Students are the focus of institutional priorities, resource decisions, and planning. We
are stewards of student needs and advocates for student academic success and professional development.

INTEGRITY Integrity involves honesty and fairness, consistency in instruction, ethics of scholarship, freedom
of inquiry, and open and truthful engagement with the community through effective communication, policies

DIVERSITY Diversity includes, but is not limited to, race, ethnicity, culture, religion, philosophy, gender,
