Our Core Values
Accountability: We do what we say we will do and accept responsibility for the quality of our work.
Empowerment: We provide students and colleagues with the best tools and guidance we can, so they can be successful and make knowledgeable decisions.
Equity: We use our voices and decisions to create processes, policies and systems that are just, impartial and fair.
Grit: We acknowledge that people and communities can experience hardship, failures and setbacks. We empower our students and one another to see shortfalls as feedback and opportunities for learning and improvement.
Inclusivity: We collaborate with students, colleagues and partners through processes that empower participants and create a true sense of belonging.
Service: We engage others in an open, friendly and responsive way that conveys we are willing to listen and understand each individual’s situation. We respond appropriately and in a timely and professional manner.
Student-Centeredness: We clear the way for students to have a voice in shaping their UW Tacoma experience and ensure that students’ experiences are considered in every conversation and decision of which our team is a part.
