Values Day

Values Day is designed to continue the dialogue between students, faculty, staff, and community members so that the Stetson University community reflects and acts upon our shared core values. To allow the entire Stetson University community to attend, the university cancels classes and closes offices. The entire community is expected to participate in this day of reflection, community, and action.

“This Values Day really showed us how to practice engaged citizenship and what being a whole person looks like.”
