To achieve our goals, we collaborate closely with the office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Engagement and the Vice Chancellor for Student Life to create a campus culture based on the principles of free inquiry, bold creativity, social responsibility, and personal growth. We strive to embody the Volunteer Spirit—the mission, vision, and values of our great university—in all we do.
