In St. Newman’s monumental work “The Idea of a University,” he writes, “The aim of a University is a true enlargement of the mind…the power of viewing many things at once.” Within the School of Business, we believe and actively uphold character development as equally imperative to academic mastery. Commerce, sports, the political arena, and non-secular institutions are in a moral and ethical crises in our country and we believe it is not only our responsibility to uphold the values of character in developing future business leaders, but to equip them to compete and ultimately win, in their respective fields of calling.
We also concede that despite our best intentions, our students, as well as ourselves, make mistakes, make poor choices, and live out of alignment with our beliefs. We also believe that mistakes should be an impetus for learning and intention to not repeat the same mistakes we made the day before.
However, we know that the three of you represent the university and its values. We also know very well that in your role as GAs, you are a living, breathing examples of the values we (and hopefully, you) espouse to our students.
