Core Values & Mission Artwork

You might notice something new around campus this fall...
...our Core Values and Mission Statement, artfully illustrated as California native plant communities and now displayed around the school.

The series of six prints each features a different representation of local plant communities, which reflect our dynamic and interconnected school community and reinforce our Core Values of Honesty, Caring, Responsibility, and Inclusion.

Illustrator Lesley Goren shared how "the last few years have reminded much stronger we are as a whole diverse and complex ecosystem than as a lone flower." Thank you, Lesley and SMOG Design, for your partnership on this project! We can't wait to enjoy it for years to come.
