Guiding Principles

University students are the reason for our work.

We offer students opportunities to explore their uniqueness as individuals and as members of a diverse community. We are committed to helping students develop beyond mere understanding and tolerance toward greater appreciation and acceptance.

We provide innovative programs and sound policies and procedures that promote citizenship, life skills, and continuing education. Our programs and services enhance learning outside of the classroom and allow us to connect to the University’s academic mission.

We create a dynamic environment through continuous improvement. Assessed issues are systematically reviewed and meaningfully implemented.
