We build relationships.

As a faculty, we engage with those on our educational paths with respect, compassion humility and humour.

We strive to be a dynamic, interactive, learning community.

We honour thoughtful reflection and dialogue while embracing dissonance.

We are passionate lifelong learners.

Together we commit to working toward the well-being of self, enrichment of the community, and stewardship of the planet.

We embrace the uniqueness of individuals and the richness of cultural diversity.

We are committed to equity and social justice as citizens in a global community. We hold ourselves accountable to honouring  Indigenous perspectives through our teaching practices, our curriculum and our daily interactions with students and the world at large.

We inspire mindful creative innovators energized by moral courage and relentless hope.

As active researchers and transformative leaders, we broaden the scope of current research through exemplary practice.
