5 Core Values Payap University Principles for Ministry These five principles are the fundamental faith and philosophical principles that inform and inspire everything that we do at Payap University. They flow out of our Christian foundation and undergird our mission statement and our motto Truth and Service. They include our statement of Desired Graduates (passion for growth, academic excellence, ethical hearts, servant leaders), and our strategic goal of internationalization.
5 Core Values Transformation Toward Authentic Peace (shalom) which is the goal of a “passion for growth.” We believe God has created and called Payap University to serve society. We work for the “kingdom of God,” that is for authentic peace (shalom) for every level:
5 Core Values Transformation Toward Authentic Peace authentic peace (shalom) for every level: for individuals, faculties/units, for Payap University, for Chiang Mai Province, for communities and societies, for the nation of Thailand, and for the world. We value sustained growth and development because it is essential for everyone.
5 Core Values Build Trust through Truth which is the basis for “academic excellence.” We believe “all truth is God’s truth” and only truth will last. We practice principle-based ethical leadership that is honest and transparent. We build trust by seeking truth together with our students through academic excellence and life-experience excellence. We value academic and research freedom. Our teaching and research are done in accordance with the highest ethical principles and standards of competence.
5 Core Values Delight in Diversity and Global Awareness which is the basis of Payap’s first major strategic goal) We believe God has created each person with value, honor, and dignity. We value and respect each person as a unique contributor to society. We implant positive attitudes and develop skills in intercultural and interfaith appreciation and global awareness. We are creating a unique Payap organizational culture that will be our identity of loving service, humble and delighted to enhance authentic peace within and beyond the university.
5 Core Values Faithful Stewardship (Oversight) – which is the application of “ethical will” to every aspect of life) We believe that God’s will is for us to be responsible to care for the things God has created. We use and develop all our resources (individual and communal) in ways that are responsible, valuable, productive, and sustainable. We care for people as whole persons, that is, their bodies, their thinking, their communities, their emotions, and their spirits. We care for and protect the environment in the best possible ways.
