Knowledgeable — by acquiring in-depth knowledge and developing understanding across a broad and balanced range of disciplines.
Thinkers — who exercise initiative in applying thinking skills critically and creatively to recognize and approach complex challenges.
Communicators — who understand and express ideas and information confidently in more than one language.
Principled — by acting with integrity and honesty, with a strong sense of fairness, justice and respect for other people’s dignity.
Open-minded — by understanding and appreciating their own cultures and personal histories and by being open to the perspectives, values and traditions of others.
Caring — by showing empathy, compassion and respect towards the needs and feelings of others.
Risk-takers — who approach unfamiliar situations and uncertainty with courage and forethought and have the independence of spirit to explore new roles, ideas and strategies.
