SAILS: Student of the Month and Core Values at O'Maley
Please link below to see our belated list of January SAILS Students of the Month. Students are selected based on their demonstration of our SAILS values: Service, Acceptance, Integrity, Leadership, and Success.
SAILS as O'Maley Core Values
Very soon students will be reflecting on SAILS in a slightly different manner, including academic goals as well as those related to community and citizenship. O'Maley staff has identified SAILS as our core values overall, and has spent some time thinking about what it means to demonstrate SAILS values in academics. It's been an interesting process, and we are looking forward to input from students.
Faculty members are working on Advisory lessons to bring students into the process so they too can have input into our academic and community core values. Discussions will be occurring during Advisory block soon.
