Excellence - We value a culture of excellence: academically, professionally, and holistically. We have a sense of responsibility for our performance and accountability for our actions. Our community members imbue a sense of ownership and commitment to their roles in the community, whether student, staff, or faculty.

Integrity - We value integrity in all our conduct, including academic integrity, and we act with honesty, honor, and truthfulness.

Respect - We value respect for oneself and others: respecting the rights and dignity of all members within our community and beyond, and sustaining an environment that fosters health, safety, civility, decency, and personal responsibility. We also respect and remain open to the perspectives of others.
