- An Educational Community that shares academic goals, one in which students, faculty and staff work together to strengthen teaching and learning.
- A Civil Community that protects freedom of belief and expression, and treats all individuals with consideration, decency and respect.
- A Responsible Community that accepts the rights and obligations expressed in the Code of Student Conduct designed for the common good of our entire community.
- A Safe Community that respects each other’s rights, privacy and property.
- An Ethical Community that reflects honesty, integrity and fairness in both academic and co-curricular activities.
- A Diverse Community that celebrates our differences and learns from our diversity.
