To achieve our mission and vision:
We inspire all members of the campus community to demand more of self than we do of others to attain new knowledge and challenge assumptions.

We, as students, create the collegiate experience through initiative, participation, motivation, and continual growth to meet the demands of self and others.
We, as faculty, elicit, nurture, and enhance the different voices of our selves, students and communities through deliberate engagement, continual discovery and ongoing transformation.
We, as staff and administrators, contribute to the learning environment by demonstrating the knowledge, skills and values that serve and support the University's mission.
