Our Guiding Principles
The success of our students will always be the most important measure of the success of the institution.
Everyone's contribution to our success is needed, and will be valued and rewarded.
Through collaborative efforts we will serve the people of Michigan, the nation, and the world.
Hallmarks of this university will be the creativity and leadership of our graduates, the relevance and benefits of our research, and the value we place on ethics, sustainability, diversity, and quality of life.
MTU's faculty will emphasize scholarship, research and inspirational teaching. Our faculty should be read and respected by leaders of science, industry, government, policy groups and business.
Engineering, science and technology, and the business of technology, will remain the focus of our university. We recognize that success in this focus requires vital programs that contribute to the cultural development, social skills and well-rounded education of our students.
