Learning and Professional Development: We pursue training and professional development opportunities to ensure that we are knowledgeable, up-to-date, and effective. We learn from one another, we learn from others, and we learn by doing.

Professionalism and Integrity: The process by which we achieve results is as important as the results that we achieve. We treat one another and our customers with respect.

Teaching and Coaching: We help others understand the materials, policies, and practices that underwrite excellence in their sponsored projects. We model best practices for others. We are patient and we listen. We help faculty become knowledgeable grant-seekers, applicants, and project managers.
