Each member is expected to respect the objectives of the institute and the views of its members.
Participants in this shared vision strive to be governed by what ought to be rather than by what is.

This ideology assumes openness to change as well as a commitment to values.

There is a climate of expectation of excellence in thinking in developing prerequisite skill in leadership and professional success. The faculty’s approach to education is to believe that rigorous habits of inquiry and skill development ensure when one expects nothing less than the best of a student.
