Something I have seen more here than at any other university is ‘collaboration’. Nobody struggles alone, and if there is a struggle, we struggle together, then we find a solution.

    Faith and reflection

    We understand the importance that faith, belief and spirituality play in lives. All members of our community are expected to support the dignity of others as they practice their faith. 

    This means that we all must respect each other's freedom within the law to express beliefs in worship and prayer; respect the decisions of others in regards to food, dress and social etiquette; not misrepresent or ridicule other people’s beliefs and practices; not actively seek to persuade others to join their faith.
