By encouraging the enjoyment of our programs, we intend to increase participation and the social engagement of our patrons.


By fostering a culture of acceptance, we welcome each member of our community to feel invited and respected through our programs.


By striving to deliver fair, consistent, and valued programs, facilities, and services we intend to create a positive experience while adapting when necessary to meet the growth and needs of our University community.
