■ A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Hafa Adai and welcome to the University of Guam/Unibetsedåt Guåhan!
UOG has a mission: Ina, Diskubre, Setbe: to Enlighten, to Discover, and to Serve. In joining this academic community, you commit yourself to this mission and to becoming a scholar, with all the rights, responsibilities, and expectations that membership in an academic community entails.
As a flagship, land-grant university serving island communities of more than half a million people in Guam, the Northern Marianas, the Federated States of Micronesia, Republic of the Marshall Islands, and the Republic of Palau, UOG is a unique institution that combines a commitment to the highest standards of American higher education with the mission to serve the special needs and character of Guam and its neighboring island communities covering nearly 3 million square miles of the Western Pacific. For more than 65 years, UOG has prepared the leaders, creators, innovators, and thinkers for this extraordinary region of the globe with a strong commitment to academic excellence and student success.
Academic excellence is dependent on feeling welcome, safe, and respected. As a member of the UOG community, you will be expected to adhere to the UOG Code of Honor, which requires us all to treat others with respect and regard, to maintain our academic integrity and truthfulness, and to avoid the mistreatment of others for any reason. A strong sense of belonging to UOG is the cornerstone for your success, and we are all committed to helping you feel a part of the Triton community. Please do your part to help others feel a strong sense of belonging at UOG.
Your time spent as a student at UOG will not only prepare you for a successful career or for advancement in a career you’ve already embarked upon, but it will also open your mind to new ways of perceiving the world and your place in it. Please do take full advantage of all that UOG has to offer. All of us here-the faculty, the staff, and the administrators-want to be here because we want to help you to become the very best version of yourself. We want you to succeed in work and in life, and we know how to help you. We’ll do our best to reach out to you, but please help us by reaching out to us, too.
I am glad you have chosen to join us and our important mission at UOG. You will be challenged, you will be inspired, and you will be amazed.
Dr. Thomas W. Krise,
