Jayhawk Values

The community at the University of Kansas, rooted in integrity, is a body of scholars, educators, and engaged minds devoted to learning, scholarship, and creative endeavor. As Jayhawks, we are committed to a set of core values.

As a Jayhawk…

We will actively foster unity. A community based in tradition and continually growing through healthy relationships and effective communication.

We will strive for innovation, using our education to find new and creative solutions to the problems facing our campus, our community, and the world.

We will advocate for inclusion, respecting all Jayhawks are unique and have their own personal stories while cultivating a safe community rooted in equity and justice.

We will value engagement, taking responsibility inside and outside of the classroom to be active members of the global community.
