  • diversity in methods, research, and teaching topics;
  • a high degree of collegiality and collaboration;
  • mentoring and maintaining a professional academic environment;
  • creating a culture of intellectual curiosity and opportunities for experiential learning;
  • supporting and holding one another accountable for maintaining these values
