Our Values Pledge

We all have an opportunity to help UNTHSC be the Team of Choice for Education, Discovery and Health care.  It starts with a commitment to live Our Values every day.  This commitment will require you to hold yourself accountable, hold others accountable and allow others to hold you accountable to Our Values.  By taking Our Values Pledge, you are affirming your commitment to our values-based culture.  After taking the pledge, you will receive a Compass Lapel Pin.  This pin will serve as a visual reminder of our commitment to living Our Values.  

Complete this form to take Our Values Pledge.  After completing the pledge, please stop by the Office of Student Development (Student Services Center, Room 204) to pick up your compass pin.
