Last summer, we started talking about values at the Open Forums, then through a discussion post that we were all asked to comment on. From that, a wordle was created. Since then, our SAEM Advisory Team has done some work around this. This fall, they grouped similar ideas and worked on definitions for our values. What you see to your left is the result of our work, and what our SAEM values look like in our daily practices of serving the NMSU community.
Thanks to all members of SAEM who contributed to this. We heard from many of you at last year’s Open Forums and in the discussion post that this type of document is important in defining who we are and what we believe. You also told us that the process is important in giving staff a voice in our direction as a unit.
You still have that voice. Share with us what you think by providing your comment below.
