    • Authentic Membership in Real Community
    • Global Citizenship and Perspective
    • Synergistic Application of Academic Learning

  • Collaborating with campus and community partners
  • Developing and implementing plans for the continual improvement of our facilities
  • Implementing best practices in physical security technology
