Our Core Values

TRUTH

We believe in the power of knowledge and the liberating force of truth. We commit ourselves to the systematic and scientific search for truth and to fairness and openness in its pursuit. We reject all forms of deceit, falseness and dishonesty. We strive for the highest quality of intellectual and academic output at the same time that we recognize and value the wisdom of the heart.

JUSTICE

We believe that all human beings should be equally blessed to be responsible for and to enjoy the fruits of knowledge-generation and social progress. We commit ourselves to a society where power and opportunity are equally shared and where the “naked are clothed and the hungry are fed.” We reject discrimination of any kind against any individual or any group. We believe in gender equality and strive for and support a diverse and interdependent human community in which people’s rights, welfare and empowerment are centrally valued.

PEACE

We believe that we should be peace-builders. We also believe that peace means the absence of violence as well as the presence of values, attitudes, behavior and ways of life based on non-violence and respect for the fundamental rights and freedom of every person. We reject violence of every form and in every social interaction and all institutions. We are committed to work for creative and constructive ways of solving conflict and to foster caring and loving relationships among all human beings and between humans and the rest of creation.

INTEGRITY OF CREATION

We believe that God has called us to be stewards of all creation and that the well-being and happiness of future generations rest upon sustainable and equitable systems and processes of production and consumption. We reject destruction of the environment and waste of natural resources. We commit ourselves to care for the earth and to practice a lifestyle that sustains the health of the planet on which all life depends.
