- Accountability – We endeavour to be accountable to our primary stakeholders and secondary stakeholders including funding partners.
- Transparency – We are committed to working transparently. All issues relating to conflict of interest shall be declared at all times.
- Student Centeredness – We thrive to promote and maintain a student-centred approach to instructional processes, learning experiences, and academic support strategies.
- Gender-Sensitivity – A society with gender-sensitive learning, research and capacity development initiatives will certainly have more sustainable transformative outcomes anchored on equality and equity.
- Reflective Learning – We believe learning is transformational and that any transformation should provide for reflective learning, building on lessons learnt whilst also finding new solutions for models, policies and theories that would have failed to achieve intended objectives.
