Vision, Mission, and Core Values
OASIS team members will provide an exceptional educational experience designed to meet the changing needs of our students. We will achieve the highest level of excellence within our academic community. In doing so, we will advance a philosophy of teamwork and cooperation through collaborative programming among students, faculty, and staff.
Our mission is to create conditions, opportunities, and partnerships that will lead students to more educationally purposeful activities in and out of the classroom. It is a challenge that focuses on the development of the whole person. We will insure the development of the whole person by placing student learning and personal development at the heart of the educational process.
- We will foster an atmosphere for learning that is non-threatening, encourages creative thinking and questioning, and respects diversity.
- We will encourage learning communities in which each individual is potentially both a teacher and learner.
- As educators, we will maintain the highest professional standards of teaching excellence.
- We will exemplify professionalism, charity, and civility in all our working relationships to infuse the spirit of our work into the university culture.
