SHS Values


The Program identifies the following three values that undergird and drive decisions and behavior: Quality, collaboration and social justice. Administrators, faculty, and staff are committed to excellence, collaborate with others and work for fairness and equity for all persons and communities. These values are operationalized throughout the Program and are implicit in the mission statement as they permeate the Program’s goals and objectives. One of the University’s six core values (tradition, accountability, learning, nurturing, service, and responsibility) underscores quality in academic and professional pursuits, specifically noted in the core value of accountability, which stresses “excellence in scholarly activities.”
