Values and Commitments

The following values and commitments have guided SFU since the year 2000. They will be refined and reshaped as we hear from the community during SFU: What's Next?

We are an open, inclusive university whose foundation is intellectual and academic freedom.

Our scholarship unites teaching and research: we celebrate discovery, diversity and dialogue.

Our students and communities can expect teaching that is personal and learning opportunities that are lifelong.

We champion the liberal arts and sciences and pioneering interdisciplinary and professional programs.

We are a university where risks can be taken and bold initiatives embraced.

Upon these foundations, we will engage all our communities in building a robust and ethical society.
