2.)   We strive to create an environment that fosters respect, values all individuals, appreciates diversity, and celebrates the contributions of all.

3.)   The office, in conjunction with other professionals and our student leaders, will offer students opportunities in leadership, social responsibility, citizenship, as well as build a forum for the cultural, educational, and social involvement of all students.

4.)   Through their participation in events and organizations supported by the office, students will communicate a sense of community and demonstrate a level of satisfaction and pride in being affiliated with Utica College.
