President's Welcome Message
Congratulations on being accepted to Tubman University. We welcome students who want to join a caring community of learners, and who uphold TU’s core values. These are as follows:
We are a caring, accessible community characterized by excellence, integrity, civility and ethics.
We are learner centered and are intellectually engaged;
Our focus is threefold: local, national and international with an emphasis on the celebration of diversity and the promotion of equal opportunity;
We maintain the highest academic standards and comport ourselves with professionalism;
We value civic virtue, dependability and trustworthiness;
We value innovation, adaptability and creativity.
As you read the first set of values, you see our emphasis on excellence, integrity, civility and ethics. You represent TU, and as such we expect that your performance and behaviors will at all times reflect excellence, integrity, civility and ethics. While the prevailing ethos may be corrupt behaviors, we expect that TU students will go against that corrupt ethos and demonstrate that Liberian students and future leaders of Liberia, Africa, and the world can set a new direction. In fact we are counting upon you to set the positive examples that will be emulated by the younger generations that follow you.
Within the pages of this handbook are rules and regulations that govern your behaviors as students. While there are penalties and sanctions for violation of these rules and regulations, it is our expectation that your behaviors will not warrant such penalties and sanctions.
We are an accessible community. As such if there are concerns, innovative ideas, issues, please use the channels of communication that have been established to alert us to them. We pledge our commitment to work with you to make TU the 21st century institution of excellence we envision. In order to do so you must become positively engaged as a student and enjoy the benefits of being a student without negative consequences.
