  • Undergraduate students are our central focus and student input guides our decision making.
  • Inclusivity is intertwined throughout our work and we continue to educate, while improving our cultural humility.
  • Ensuring safe, clean, and visually appealing residence halls with timely response to repairs and facility improvements is a foundational component in meeting our students' needs.
  • We demonstrate responsible fiscal management and good stewardship of student monies.
  • Our ability to support and develop student leaders is enhanced by our collaborative partnerships with professionals from across campus.
  • We strive for radical hospitality. We work hard to provide outstanding service to our students during the academic year and our conference guests in the summer.

  • Our staff, in all positions, add value to our department. They are respected, their identities are embraced, and they are empowered to be creative, and therefore flourish, in their positions.
