Academic vision

We envision a University with a shared responsibility to foster academic excellence in teaching, scholarship, and service within the context of our Mission and Core Commitments.

As a University community, we value:

  • Faculty pursuing diverse perspectives in teaching, scholarship, and service through collaboration and creative problem-solving within and across disciplines;
  • a diverse student body supported and challenged by experiential learning embedded within innovative curricula and teaching;
  • a culture enriched by a global worldview, critical community engagement, ethical reasoning, professional and social responsibility.
