  • Community-minded: Collaborative and supportive. We are building a new university with its own culture. We seek students who work well with each other and enjoy doing so, and who want to make the world a better place through service to society.
  • Committed: Students who finish what they start, who overcome roadblocks with grace, and who are resourceful in their problem solving.  Students equally committed to their personal passions and improving the lives of the individuals and community around them.
  • Have integrityStudents who are trusted and respected in their communities and capable of overcoming setbacks. For the foundation of such a bold enterprise, we need people who act with integrity, are authentic, honest, emotionally mature, and resilient.

Beyond these characteristics, we are also looking for students who have demonstrated their ability to think critically and creatively, effectively communicate and collaborate with others and pursue their passions.  Finally, we seek students who have academic depth and breadth.
