Core Values

We honor our commitments, striving to always be honest, trustworthy, respectful, and ethical in our actions.

We know that respect for others fosters a greater opportunity for understanding.  Everyone in our community will be treated with dignity, regardless of thoughts, experiences, backgrounds, or perspectives.

We commit to ensuring that we communicate in ways that are respectful and healthy for everyone. We take responsibility to listen, speak, and clearly communicate pertinent information and concerns among students, administration, faculty, staff, and other stakeholders of the community.

We provide quality service with an expectation that all staff are committed to making residents and guests feel welcome.  We find ways to provide high-quality and timely-service solutions.  Returning phone calls and answering emails within 24 business hours, greeting guests with smiles, and treating everyone with respect shows our pride in serving.

We believe in a learning culture committed to problem solving, innovation, benchmarking, and adopting best practices. We recognize individual and group learning as prime means of delivering our mission and encourage continuous reflection through a process of review and improvement.
