Our core values at Empower

Our values guide how we design and empower millions:

  • Be open: We’re transparent with our learners, our partners, and each other about what we’re doing and why.
  • Empower others: We help our learners, our partners and each other be the best they can be, welcoming anyone to the Empower community.
  • Leadership – Through our collective knowledge, experience, and scope we serve as a globally recognized authority in digital learning.
  • Collaboration – We embrace the spirit of exploring challenges, sharing ideas, and creating solutions to accomplish goals beyond the capacity of any single member organization.
  • Advocacy – We actively promote and support effective local, state, and national policies that impact the development of quality digital learning and access for all students.
  • Innovation – We share our collective expertise, capacity, and resources to imagine and enable the adoption of transformative educational practices to impact teaching and learning in positive ways.
  • Learn together: We listen to and address the needs of our learners and partners, celebrating our successes and learning from our failures.
  • Think big: We strive to transform education - and change our learners’ lives, our partners’ businesses, and the world in the process.
  • Exciting learning experience: We make online learning enjoyable for our learners and our partners alike, and have fun while we’re doing it.
  • Freedom and Unity of Teaching and Research: We pursue excellence in teaching and learning through contributions from all community members fostering a culture of open exchange. Balancing teaching and research enriches both realms, fostering a vibrant academic ecosystem. We uphold the right to freedom of teaching and discussion, freedom in carrying out research and disseminating and publishing the results thereof. We also uphold freedom to express freely their opinion about the Empower School of Health and freedom to participate in professional or representative academic bodies.
