Core Values

Integrity

Trust, respect, and civility bring out the best in people. We respect and behave ethically toward each other and our external partners. We practice social and civic responsibility in the greater communities to which we belong.

Diversity

We value our membership in a lifelong community that is broadly diverse. We believe that differences make Babson a richer community and provide the necessary contexts for shared accomplishment. We welcome and value people and their perspectives and respect the interests of all of the members of the community.

Innovation

We have a long-standing commitment to an institutional culture that fosters creativity, risk-taking, continuous improvement, leadership, and an entrepreneurial spirit. We encourage people to take the initiative and make a difference.

Collaboration

Our commitment to cross-disciplinary collaboration and to working closely with students defines the practices of the faculty, administration, staff and who work on the campus of Babson College. Together with our alumni, and with our external partners, we create a learning and working experience that is greater than the sum of its parts.

Excellence

Babson College is committed to excellence. Ours is a community in which all members can achieve their personal best. We seek to support each other thoughtfully for continuous growth and development.
