The 4 major components of the program:

  1. Learning about Core Values and what they mean by breaking down and discussing the terms Core, Values, and Core Values.
  2. Helping students and faculty to look within themselves to discover and enumerate their own Core Values.
  3. Preparing multimedia presentations that highlight students’ Core Values and the things about which they are passionate.
