  • Sense of community and mutual respect
  • Community engagement

    Aspirational - Aspirational values help us articulate the vision for the future:

  • Integration of liberal and professional learning
  • Collaborative learning
  • Teacher/Scholar Community
  • Academic distinctiveness
  • Innovativeness
  • Diversity
  • Global consciousness
  • Preparing responsible leaders
