Guiding Principles

The following principles guide OPAL's priorities and goals:

  • An inclusive and affirming educational environment leads to better learning outcomes for all students.
  • Students who are supported and challenged appropriately are best positioned to meet their educational, personal, and career potential.
  • Understanding where students are developmentally, as well as their socio-cultural context, increases our ability to positively enhance student learning and leadership development.
  • Leadership development can be a bridge between students' curricular and co-curricular experiences, evidenced by the transfer of knowledge into applied skills.
  • The development of key partnerships with campus colleagues maximizes learning outcomes for all students.
