Introducing our Values

How we work and how we make decisions.

Our values guide our behavior – our interactions, our approaches to teaching and learning, and our responses to each other. Ultimately, our values must inform how we work and how we make decisions.

However, we are not there yet. We know from our consultations that these values – while endorsed by the community – are not consistently reflected on our campuses and in our classrooms. We will continue to work tirelessly in our efforts to make these values synonymous with BCIT. Only then will we be able to fully realize our goals of serving the success of our people, partners, and province through applied learning that leads to practical, real-world results.

At BCIT we strive to:

Achieve excellence
We strive to achieve excellence in everything we do and to accomplish real and measurable results.

Embrace innovation
We embrace innovation, ignited by imagination and creativity, to improve our approaches, opportunities, and outcomes.

Champion diversity and inclusion
We champion diversity of experiences, ideas, cultures, and perspectives, fostering a community permeated with equality and inclusivity.

Pursue collaboration
We believe in the power of collaboration to amplify our efforts.

Engage with respect
We work from a position of respect for others’ expertise, insight, and inherent worth, and we reflect a respect for future generations in our passion for sustainability.
