AUC

OUR VALUES


Respect

Respect for personal dignity and individual potential is important at AUC and has consistently prompted AUC to welcome students and help them succeed.

Excellence

AUC's commitment to excellence impels both individuals and the University itself to consistently strive for outcomes that are exemplary rather than simply satisfactory. Such striving for excellence touches all aspects of University life. This value also inspires the University community to recognize its members' significant achievements and contributions to the welfare of others.

Compassion

This value reflects the reality that mercy demands commitment, courage, and action, as well as sensitivity, understanding, and care. Staff, faculties, and students of AUC stand with their colleagues in times of personal crisis or grief and express compassion through multiple endeavors that respond to the needs of others within and beyond the University.

Service

Service to students is a basic daily life at AUC, as is service by students, staff, and faculty each lending personal skills and professional expertise to assist others through campus, off-campus internships, service trips, and numerous volunteer opportunities that extend the ethos and the value of service.

Hospitality

At AUC, the value of hospitality means making space for an unexpected visitor, a surprising idea, a fresh insight, even a disturbing question or challenging opportunity. Welcoming the ideas of another may not result in an agreement, but such hospitality does require attentive listening and a readiness to reconsider one's position.

Integrity

Whether personal or institutional, implies coherence between words and acts. It calls each member of the AUC community to live in accord with what the University rules and regulations to be as an educational institution. At AUC, integrity suggests both a certain wholeness in the University itself and connections between the University and the larger educational, religious, and social worlds in which it functions.
