Expectations of SCU Employees

The SCU President’s Cabinet has identified a set of values and attributes that are bare minimums

for employment, those that are core to who we are as a university, and values to which we aspire.

Further identified are qualities and attributes desirable for employees in general, and senior

leadership specifically. This is in harmony with principles found in The Advantage, by Patrick

Lencioni.

SCU Core Values:

1. Transparency: Transparency implies openness, clear communication, respect, and accountability.

Transparency is operating in such a way that it is easy for others to see what actions are

performed. At SCU we believe that transparency leads to trust, improved problem solving, stronger

unified teams, and enhanced productivity.

2. Grit: Grit is passion and perseverance toward long-term goals. A positive, non-cognitive

trait based on an individual’s passion for a particular long-term goal coupled with a powerful

motivation to achieve their respective objective. This perseverance of effort promotes the

overcoming of obstacles or challenges that lie within a gritty individual’s path to accomplishment.

At SCU, grit is “Sprinting the Marathon” we have engaged in to be successful and reach long-term

sustainability in the ever-changing healthcare and higher education environment.

3. Sense of Humor: Having a sense of humor is about having a sense of perspective and using

the ability to find the humor in situations to manage stress and creatively problem solve. At SCU,

adding relevant and safe humor is about celebrating work, not trivializing it. By occasionally

taking ourselves lightly, while still taking our jobs seriously, mixing humor in an appropriate

manner will lead to improved workplace productivity and morale.
