The Vaughn College faculty and staff participated in a series of activities to celebrate the launch of the College’s core values on Tuesday, October 9. All of the College’s departments convened in the main lobby, forming teams and sharing perspectives of core values and how they can help the institution to better serve students.

The Vaughn College Core Values Are:

Demonstrate Integrity: We pursue our mission following the highest standards of excellence, ethics and mutual trust, and expect everyone to be accountable for their decisions and actions.

Embrace Diversity: By respecting diversity in all its dimensions, we foster a community that invites and is inclusive of everyone.

Practice Collaboration: Our culture is driven by a commitment to shared governance, teamwork, communication and collaboration within the institution and in partnership with outside entities.

Achieve Impact: We are dedicated to providing students an educational experience that will transform their lives and to creating a learning environment for trustees, faculty and staff that nurtures a passion for student success.

Choose Courage: Leveraging our pioneering aeronautical heritage, we choose to be bold in our decision-making, challenge the status quo, and generate opportunity for future generations.

Games and activities were scheduled during the event and exemplified each of the core values.

“The Vaughn community aims to align our professional goals with the core values,” said Adrian Chutkhan, associate director of student advisement. “Everyone here wants to help improve the student experience and aim for student success.”
