Institutional Vision and Values
We transform individuals and their communities
through extraordinary higher learning.
We commit to four core values in what we do and represent:
Reminding us of our moral and public commitment to the people we serve on and off
campus and tasking each of us with the responsibility to marshal our time, talents, and resources for the
Recognizing that learning is a social activity and that we cannot fulfill our mission of public
higher education without collaborating with those on our campuses and outside our doors
in our communities
A cornerstone of human growth, individual and collective, and a necessary hallmark of
progress and success, requiring us to lead and manage change — not be simply affected
These values underpin that of learning, the reason we exist as an institution and why
students entrust us and also what we each must do continuously as faculty and staff to
stay abreast of expanding and changing fields of knowledge and grow professionally.
