Pacific's Values

Our shared values are at the heart of who we are as Pacificans and represent what we do best. Our values guide and shape our students' success by defining the essence of what a Pacific education means. This affirmed set of values builds students' pride and sense of belonging to the university and can transform their Pacific experience into lasting loyalty. Our values also support our faculty and staff development and engagement through a shared sense of purpose and identity. They foster a culture that recognizes and rewards the talents and commitment of our people, and cultivate an environment of innovation, inclusiveness and respect.
