The core values of the Drama Program are identified as The 3 E’s:
Excellence is a wholesome discipline applied toward a meaningful goal; it fosters perseverance in the face of obstacles, setbacks and disappointments; it embraces healthy habits of mind and the determination to achieve great things.
Engagement is harnessing collective energy for the common good; it cultivates collaboration and an interest in the whole; it expresses a generous and public-minded sense of our responsibility to and investment in our community.
Empathy is an orientation toward others and a recognition of our common humanity; it allows us to understand and care about the thoughts and feelings of others as much we do our own; it challenges us to offer everyone not only dutiful respect, but self-sacrificing love.
They are the foundation of the work we do.
