    • Establish educational partnerships that integrate academic learning and student development
    • Co-create a campus culture, climate and environment that promote a comprehensive, holistic approach to student learning and "puts the good of all students first."
    • Help students to develop a coherent set of values (outlined in Seattle University Mission Statement) and ethical standards consistent with our Jesuit/Catholic Mission.
    • Utilize an ongoing systematic inquiry to enhance the quality of the student learning experience.
