We develop strategies that adapt to changing environments, steward the College’s budget and resources, and further SFC’s Strategic Vision to prepare our students to reflect the just society in which we want to live.

  • We responsibly engage and maintain a pulse on the community and its needs, working with stakeholders to, in a Franciscan way, manage difficult conversations and solve persistent problems.
  • We embody the behavior we hope to instill in the community by being effective communicators, accountable for respecting everyone’s viewpoint, and supporting the team’s collaborative ideas - even if we disagree individually.
  • We ensure strong communication and dissemination of information to each other and the campus community with an appreciation for the effective balance of confidentiality and transparency.
