Value Statements are the guiding and aspirational principles that unite a community, inform direction, and help a group make tough decisions in times of ambiguity.
Dragons began the work of crafting new Value Statements over a year ago. It started with a call to the community (staff, student, and admin) for essays in response to the prompt: “What is the heart of Dragons?” From those qualitative responses, a Word Cloud was born.
Dragons admin then used 237 phrases taken from the “Heart of Dragons” essays to create 50+ first draft Value Statements. With the help of our student ambassadors, we have narrowed the list down to 9 statements.
The aim of this survey is to find out if we’re on track with these value statements, or need to further refine or build them. Just as we started with our community, we now turn to you again for your feedback in this final stage of review and revision.
There’s space at the end of the survey to offer more feedback or write/add your own Value Statement if you feel something essential is missing.
Thank you so much for sharing your time, insights, and feedback with us.
