UMB is committed to practice ethical and sound leadership through deliberate and systematic attention to the ethical principles that guide all leaders in a moral and just society. We endeavor to direct initiatives in a way that inspires respect.

UMB strives to help its faculty, staff, and students make the connection between what they learn and how they live — and how they guide and influence others for the greater good of humanity. We develop and offer on- and off-campus opportunities for faculty, staff, and students to engage in activities that promote social and global responsibility and thus the chance to prepare themselves for leadership and responsible citizenship in their professions and communities
