Values and Guiding Principles

Brookhaven Drama


We will have fun. Humor, entertainment, and even silliness in the workplace will be expected, no exceptions.

Continuous Learning

We will engage in continuous learning through: staff development; formal education; personal research and reading; discipline-specific creative activities; and/or other planned or spontaneous activities.


We will be contributing and participative members of our departments, the division, and the college.


We will work from the perspective of inclusion of and respecting all: cultural and ethnic backgrounds; personal histories and philosophies; lifestyle orientations; and, learning and teaching styles.


We will strive to teach, learn, create and perform at a level so that "excellence" becomes standard operating procedure.


We will create, invent, and discover. Failure is an option; doing nothing is not.
