At the Edwards School of Business we are guided by the following values:

Respect and Reconciliation We commit to integrating Indigenous perspectives and knowledge into our curriculum and our research, fostering meaningful relationships with Indigenous Peoples and communities, and creating an inclusive campus environment for Indigenous students, faculty, and staff.

We encourage a collaborative environment where students, faculty, staff, and alumni come together, leveraging their diverse perspectives, talents, and expertise in the classroom, in research, and in our community. We are committed to providing students and researchers with the support they need to realize their full potential.
Integrity and
Critical Thinking
We foster an environment where honesty, ethical conduct, and accountability are upheld by all members of the Edwards community. We encourage and nurture the development of critical thinking skills, empowering individuals to approach challenges and opportunities with open-mindedness, intellectual rigor, and analytical reasoning.
