We will show Respect for ourselves and for others by showing compassion and empathy, respecting each experience for what it is (practicing civility at all times), not judging or promoting gossip. We will act with Integrity by being honest, trustworthy and doing the right thing.

We will serve FAMU and the surrounding community with Dedication by acting as stewards of the environment, ensuring that all physical assets are turned over to the next generation with an increased value.
