Has your institution experienced a challenge to core values such as academic freedom, autonomy, social responsibility, equitable access and accountability? As important as the response to these challenges is, it is equally important to consider what steps your institution can take to regularly reinforce support for core values—whether in international partnerships or on campus—before the next crisis arises. By building a foundation of support for values, your institution will be better able to respond to challenges, and create an environment that supports all students, faculty and staff. This workshop will offer advice and concrete suggestions for developing a values culture and developing a framework for responding to incidents.
