Mission, Vision and Guiding Principles
Transform lives through leadership education, identity development and community engagement.
Students and alumni are responsible citizens and effective leaders. They are aware of and engaged in the world around them and use their talents and means to create a more just and humane society.
Students are aware of their values and multiple identities, including ability, age, class, ethnicity, faith structure, gender identity expression, nationality, race, sex, sexual orientation and socioeconomic status. They recognize the intersection of these identities and acknowledge that multiculturalism enhances quality of life. From this understanding, students belong to and create intercultural communities that benefit from the value of difference.
Students and alumni are known and respected for their leadership acumen and public service tradition. In their personal, professional and creative communities, they readily seek to accept opportunities for life-long learning, meaningful influence and positions of trust.
