Core Values

Core Values

The core values are a set of principles that are aligned with the University’s mission and guide the practice and development of curriculum, faculty, students, and staff.

Ethics –
Foster a learning environment that promotes responsible, principled behavior which respects the dignity of all members of the community. Students develop interests and acquire knowledge from multiple fields such as economics, the environment, and ethics as well as demonstrate knowledge and understanding of scientific, historical, and social phenomena.

Integrity –
Conduct all activities in an ethical manner that is both open and collaborative. Commit to practices that are fair, honest, and objective in dealing with students, faculty members, staff, and stakeholders at all levels of the community. Students and faculty are expected to adhere to academic integrity, the highest ethical standards, and professional conduct in all processes and practices. GIU endeavors to systematically and effectively plan, oversee, evaluate, and improve its program objectives to ensure the academic quality and integrity of its academic programs and the credits and degrees awarded.

Open Access –
Provide opportunities for lifelong educational options for all student populations, including non-traditional and underserved communities. Broaden access to degree programs for underserved constituencies through distance education technologies. GIU provides access to online library resources and services that assist students to meet the objectives of the degree program through Greenford Online Library.

Diversity –
Embrace and promote diversity in policies and practices to prepare students to live and work successfully in an increasingly diverse workplace and society.

Student Services –
Strive to ensure that curriculum, delivery, and support services:
  • Respond to inquiries, requests, and concerns in an appropriate and timely manner
  • Monitor operations in a continuous process of self-assessment and invite external evaluations by public agencies
  • Remain accountable to students and to the public to fulfill the educational mission
Quality –
Maintain a commitment to meet or exceed standards set by accrediting and regulatory bodies in all aspects of educational activities, outcomes, support services; assess practices, policies, and procedures to strengthen the overall effectiveness of curriculum, instructional delivery, and operations. Allied American University is committed to providing quality online distance education degree programs for adult learners in a student-centred academic environment. GIU’s emphasis is on educational programs that lead to the acquisition of knowledge and skills necessary to achieve career advancement, personal satisfaction, leadership, and service to the community.

Effective Written and Oral Communication –
Strive to develop effective oral and written communication student skills that lead to the clear expression of ideas, feelings, and information. Develop competence in communication, critical thinking, collaboration, and information utilization together with an interest in lifelong learning to enhance opportunities for sustained career success.

Critical Thinking –
Enable students to develop a disciplined process of conceptualizing, analyzing, and applying information to use in their daily lives. Critical Thinking Students reflect broad analytical habits of thought, with a particular emphasis on critical thinking. Graduates should have an awareness of both the power and limitations of knowledge, an appreciation for the necessity of a historical grounding in all areas of inquiry, and the acquisition of those skills to identify, evaluate, and use evidence judiciously to fashion well reasoned and persuasive arguments.

Respect for the Value of Learning –
The University values intellectual curiosity, along with academic excellence, in the lives of its students. It is GGIU’s belief that these values will enable students to achieve greater personal and professional growth that will benefit them at home, on the job, and in their communities. In addition to specific intellectual knowledge and skills, a broad general education should also include important and substantive values. Therefore, as a result of their studies in the general education curriculum, graduates should:
  • Be able to reason critically about the various ethical dimensions of society.
  • Value service to their local community and to broader causes at the national and international level.
  • Value and demonstrate compassion, justice and mutual respect for all individuals regardless of their physical differences or differences in viewpoints.
  • Assume positions of leadership and high responsibility in all phases of society.
