Our Core Values


We are committed to providing a caring, dynamic and diverse learning environment that develops principled health professionals. Our five core values inform the education we provide.


We are accountable to our various communities:

  • Our students: who deserve the very best inclusive educational experience from faculty who are invested in students’ professional success.
  • Our colleagues: who deserve a nurturing community in the Faculty of Health Sciences so that they can fulfill their potential as educators and scholars at the University of Lethbridge.
  • Our professions: which provide us with grounding in ethical practice that frames both applied and curiosity driven research and scholarship.
  • Our community: whose investment in education will allow for a new generation of well-grounded, well-prepared and culturally sensitive graduates.


We are collaborative in our approach to research and scholarship, teaching and learning, and program development.


We facilitate a supportive teaching and learning environment where students thrive on a progressive journey of learning until they ultimately transition into professional practice as creative thinkers who embrace reflection, imagination, commitment, action and evaluation.


We demonstrate an understanding, respect and appreciation of the diversity in people, cultures, communities and populations through diverse teaching and learning practices.


We support a vigorous scholarly community that facilitates lively knowledge exchange through dynamic and innovative teaching and research.
