Our individual and collective efforts create the legacy of NMC. In order to achieve our mission, we are individually committed and responsible to live these values:

Learning is at the center of all we strive to achieve. It is the foundation upon which an enlightened citizenry and a dynamic community are built and is a lifelong process in which we are all engaged.

We will continuously improve the learning experience and its global relevance to those we serve through innovation, agility and thoughtful risk-taking.

Our actions are governed by the highest degree of ethics, integrity and personal responsibility, exhibited through transparency, openness and trust.

We each will practice responsible stewardship for the human, physical, financial and environmental resources entrusted to our care.

Each of us will strive to exceed expectations for quality and service in all that we do.

We value all people and will invest in their personal and professional growth and development.

We will exhibit foresight by monitoring the changing world around us and taking actions today that prepare us to meet future needs of our communities.

We will seek others who share our vision and values, and collaborate with them on behalf of our communities.
