Our core values succinctly speak to our purpose and our commitments to our community, our students, and to one another. Excellence is our hallmark: Outstanding people, ideas, and programs drive our educational mission. Integrity, civility, and diversity define our community: These values guide our leadership in a global society. Stewardship enhances our legacy: As Ohio’s first institution of public higher education, we are mindful of our accountability to the public trust. Today’s students must be taught global literacy.
They must be able to solve complex, multi-faceted, and yet-to-be-developed issues. These students must graduate with a firm hold of new technologies and a keen understanding of the globalized world in which they will use those technologies. They must have the people skills necessary for collaboration as well as an understanding of the compound social and political issues faced by a 21st Century society.
