Our principles and values establish our expectations for how we behave as a University community, both as individuals and as an institution. This session will describe the culture that all members of our campus community aspire to embrace and uphold by exploring the guiding principles, values, structures, and policies that improves the effectiveness and creates a sense of identity and belonging for all.

This program includes three components: 

  • Self-Directed Learning (30-45min)
  • Virtually Facilitated Workshop (90min) 
  • Post-Session Goal and Feedback (15min) 

You will receive an email with access to the required self-directed learning one week prior to the date of the Virtually Facilitated Workshop.

The workshop will build upon the pre-learning with opportunities to have topic discussions with other participants.
