Value Statements

Based on faculty and staff feedback from the WE Speak survey, and table dialogue from the January 2014 Special Faculty Council on values, the WEAct Working Group: Communication (Recognition, Respect, Collaboration) team developed the following value statements for Western Engineering.


Each person in Engineering has the right to be treated with respect and dignity. We will create and maintain a safe and respectful learning and teamwork environment in which all students, staff, faculty and alumni can aspire to excellence and success.


We will foster a culture of achievement where our students, staff, faculty and alumni can lead and succeed as global citizens and make a difference in society. We will act as ambassadors of Western Engineering to celebrate our successes internally and externally.


We will be a community where information and ideas are shared openly, participation and collaboration are encouraged, and feedback is valued.


We will embrace the values of honesty, fairness and respect in all of our academic and professional activities.
