The Office of Institutional Culture is about improving the University. We are creating a culture of belonging where every person feels valued and has an opportunity to add value. We are fostering a value-based and purpose-driven organization.

To get there, the university community decided on a set of common values, leadership expectations, and service standards. All of these principles will increase engagement, productivity, and positive outcomes.

"Universities must lead the way in intentionally cultivating the free expression of diverse perspectives. If we are not deliberate about creating the conditions that will encourage real bridging, we are left with multiplicity rather than real diversity."
      - President Frenk
