Core Values

Core Values pinpoint the subtle qualities that form the basis of an organization’s culture. Shared values create a sense of collective purpose and camaraderie. At a more practical level, they help prospective employees decide if an organization is a good fit for them. For current employees, values are like a compass—they give direction on what makes a good decision or course of action.

LWTech’s values are:

  • Inclusive: We intentionally create a welcoming environment where all feel a sense of belonging.
  • Innovative: We are leaders in maximizing opportunities to create a thriving college community.
  • Collaborative: We are open to change and work together to achieve success for all.
  • Respectful: We engage others with acceptance, open-mindedness, courtesy, and care.
