SGU Values as an Organization

The SGU Values guide us in what we do and how we do it…for us, the work that we do every day matters. Our success, and the success of SGU’s students, depends on the collective achievement of individual goals by every member of our team.

SGU knows the transformative power of SGU’s international student community, faculty and staff to serve the health and welfare needs of their communities.  

Our teams are inspired by the values that help define us.

GLOBAL COMMUNITY

We are one team with an international outlook welcoming the strength in our diversity and the value each of us brings to what we do.

“I have had so many great opportunities, at a much earlier stage in my 20 year career with SGU than would have been possibly elsewhere.  As Chair of the Department I help guide our faculty and oversee their professional development, as well as overseeing the delivery of the microbiology content across the 4-year MD program in my role as content manager. And did I mention that I get to do all of this while living in the Caribbean?!”
