Regarding Ethics and Equity, Social
Responsibilities, and Community Service
Western expects employees and students to be leaders in their work and communities. The Strategic Plan identifies service, quality, enthusiasm, freedom, respect, and courage as the institutional values of Western (Figure O.1). These core values shape day-to-day operations and contribute to a distinctive Western culture.
The Policy Guide contains policies that help shape the institution’s identity and promote equity (Figure 5.5).
