The core values that will guide the institution have been explicitly stated and it is our intention that these values will infuse everything we do.
- We believe in the dignity and intrinsic worth of all people and endeavour to celebrate individuals by fostering an appreciation of and respect for each otherís difference.
- As a University community we value ethical behaviour in all our endeavours, whether scholarly, cultural or intellectual and expect all conduct to be grounded in integrity, mutual respect and civility.
- We value excellence in our instructional, administrative and managerial pursuits, and are dedicated to the provision of academic courses of the highest quality in an environment that encourages excellence in research and scholarly activity employing the most effective tools, technologies and facilities for learning.
- Innovation is encouraged inside and outside the classroom. We foster intellectual inquiry, exploration and discovery that transcend traditional boundaries in an atmosphere that celebrates creativity.
