Our core values

The three core values are permeated
by a special care for the Slovenian heritage.

Academic Excellence

We seek an uncompromising standard of excellence in teaching, learning, creativity, and scholarship within and across disciplines.

Character Formation

We seek to form the whole person: men and women distinguished by intellectual rigor, moral character, community building and the ability to make ethical decisions.

Dedicated Service

We seek to prepare global citizens who advocate for the benefit of humanity and contribute to the
intellectual, economic and cultural vitality of society by serving those with least access to power in order to promote the flourishing of all.
