Core Values: P.A.C.K.


Innovation, sustainability and integrity are essential components of our commitment to students, faculty, staff, and community members. We are responsible stewards of the university and the environment and are dedicated to sustainable growth and development.


We are actively engaged in contributing to our region and committed to the social mobility of our students and community members. We value justice and equity in all that we do, and work collaboratively to be inclusive in achieving collective and individual goals.


We are committed to our student population and fostering their success. We recognize that equitable access to information, research, experiences, and resources is vital to a positive educational environment, thriving athletics, and extracurricular activities. We believe in transparency, eliminating barriers, and empowering each other so everyone may fully participate in gaining knowledge and derive the greatest benefits from university life.


We recognize, respect, and value each member of the campus community, and treat everyone with kindness and compassion. We are invested in the academic, economic, social, emotional, psychological, and physical well-being of our students and campus colleagues. We believe a healthy university is one in which we all thrive.
