Values

The members of SAIL are aware of the complex dynamics that surround our shared work. We believe that the status quo is not sustainable and that global solutions require integrative and trans-disciplinary approaches in order to be effective. We believe in the transformative power of learning and that learning can only be considered transformative if it involves a fundamental questioning or reordering of how one thinks or acts (Brookfield). This involves a fundamental challenge to hegemonic conditions and involves critical analysis and reflection on power differentials and other taken for granted assumptions. SAIL will undertake its mission in accordance with the following core values:

  • Critical Reflection
  • Diversity 
  • Equity
  • Human Rights
  • Integration
  • Reciprocity
  • Social Justice
