Core Values


We are committed to the cultivation of positive relationships between, and common experiences among, students, faculty, and staff.


We are committed to creating an academic institution where a variety of persons and perspectives are welcome. We are committed to providing an environment where students from all cultures and backgrounds may succeed.


We are committed to creating an institution and a society where everyone is appreciated and judged based on their contributions and performance rather than gender, race, religion, physical abilities, sexual identity, or socio-economic condition. Through the work of this institution, we will both create awareness of, and work to eliminate, individual and institutional racism.


We are committed to setting high standards of academic rigor in courses and creating high expectations for achievement by everyone. We seek the personal and intellectual transformation of our students through the liberal arts.


We are committed to creating a community that acts with honesty and forthrightness, holding ourselves to high academic and ethical standards, and dealing with everyone with respect.


We are committed to the peaceful resolution of conflict, sharing of economic and natural resources, and parity in educational opportunity.


We are committed to making decisions that will ensure the long-term survival of this institution. We must maximize the value of our human, financial, and physical resources in ways consistent with our Quaker heritage.
