Eight Core Values, articulated in 2020-2021 but always at the heart of Kalinga University mission, ground and enliven the institution's academic and co-curricular programs and its operating ethos. These values ground and enliven the University's Catholic identity, Mercy heritage and commitment to knowledge for both personal enhancement and social progress.
Kalinga University commitment to excellence impels both individuals and the University itself to consistently strive for outcomes that are exemplary rather than simply satisfactory. Such striving for excellence touches all aspects of University life from academic programs to sports, from student services to campus environment, from recruitment to publications, from special occasions to daily business. This value also inspires the University community to recognize its members' significant achievements and contributions to the welfare of others.
This value reflects the reality that mercy demands commitment, courage and action, as well as sensitivity, understanding and care. Members of the Kalinga University community stand with their colleagues in times of personal crisis or grief and express compassion through multiple endeavors that respond to the needs of others within and beyond the University.
