We are all scholars here. We have a duty to our profession, our society, and our students to engage in scholarship as a life-long search for new answers to intellectually vital questions. By our example as scholars, we teach our students the importance of an abiding curiosity and thirst for knowledge.
Students come first. We base every decision on what is best for our students, and though reasonable people disagree about what is "best," we do not accept decisions premised on any lesser standard.
The right to be authentic. We believe in allowing each faculty member the autonomy to express their uniqueness as teachers, scholars, and community members. The interplay among these diverse perspectives, rather than any one best model of pedagogy or scholarship, promotes learning, passion, and innovation.
Truly professional education. We are committed to our students' professional development. We define "professional" broadly to include technical competence, intellectual depth, and moral development. The truly professional manager is not constrained by narrow conventions but understands organizations, has the skills and creativity to lead them, and thinks deeply and responsibly about their impact on society.
Leave room for community. Even in our autonomy, we are responsible to each other, to help each other achieve our professional goals and to work together in common cause. We value the fundamental trust and easy collegiality that we share.
"You want students who can talk to all levels of people about all types of ideas and be open to learning things that may not be their subject matter. That is one reason the liberal arts environment does well to prepare one for business."More about Professor Guthrie
"In our program, students are focused on learning what sustainability means. What are the environmental underpinnings of sustainability? What are the social underpinnings of sustainability?"More about Professor Hendry
