Our Core Values


We nurture a culture of equity and inclusion. We strive to make the most generous assumptions about the words, intentions, and behaviors of others. Invested in intercultural competence, we invite multiple voices, difference, and constructive dialogue to create a community where members feel recognized, heard, and valued.


We engage in the complex struggle of the human experience through courage and vulnerability. With curiosity, we aim to balance kindness and candor.


We foster self-efficacy and skillfully advocating for students and colleagues when we encounter inequity, injustice, and developmental opportunities.


We partner with our community of students and colleagues. Recognizing our interdependence, we intentionally seek opportunities to listen, learn, and innovate.


We provide clear, accurate, complete, and timely information and guidance. We aim to build a culture of data- informed decision making and continuous improvement as we adapt to the ever-evolving landscape of higher education.


We cultivate mutual trust and wellbeing for students and each other through curiosity, responsiveness, and an investment in the CU community.
