We accomplish this by focusing on the four core values that have been our tradition since 1912: Character, Scholarship, Culture, and Service.
We believe in integrity. We act with honesty and respect toward others. We take responsibility for our actions and reflect on their impact on ourselves and others.
We believe in learning. We use rigorous, responsible, and critical inquiry to understand existing knowledge, acquire and share new knowledge, and apply what we learn. Each of us is both student and teacher.
We believe in celebrating humanity. We enrich ourselves and others by sharing and exploring our similarities and differences. We honor the past as we invent the future.
We believe in helping others. We work with others to improve the communities in which we now live and will touch in the future. Knowledge invests us with the power to improve our world and the responsibility to act.
In 1912, our student body adopted the above words, emphasizing their order:
"Character as the essential, Scholarship as the means,
Culture as the enrichment, and Service as the end of all worthy endeavor.

“You can’t go home again.” I began to ruminate over the phrase made famous by Thomas Wolfe as I prepared to conduct an interview with President Francis L. Hendricks. You see, Hendricks is a 1979 graduate of Mansfield University of Pennsylvania. He recently returned to the university as its 28th president. Apparently, you can go home again, and to much fanfare and excitement. I recently sat down with him to see what life is like for a former student returning home to run his alma mater.
