Core Values


Students are the center and reason for our work. We value all students and the opportunities we have to be a part of their education and personal development. We value the unique strengths, skills, life experiences, and talents each student contributes to the learning environment.


We strive to shape an environment of respect and openness, allowing for the free exchange of ideas and viewpoints. We strive for proactive and continual communication between departments and within the University.


We strive for the highest levels of professional standards and integrity. Strong ethics and morals must serve as the foundation for our policies, procedures, services, and relationships with students and one another.


We strive to promote and support diversity in all of its forms at the University and within our Division. We value the uniqueness of each individual and we value what each individual contributes to our organization. We are committed to learning from talents and gifts offered by each member of the UNA community.


We strive to work together as a collective team, positively supporting, motivating, and challenging each other.

Innovation / Creativity / Adaptability

We strive to constantly seek positive and creative change to adapt to the needs and visions of students and the University that will promote a campus of vitality and purpose.
