Ochethi Sakowin Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, 和 Values
Sitting Bull College strives for educational equity, 多样性, 和 inclusion in scholarly activities by cultivating opportunities for collaboration 和 community to create, 模型, 应用, 和 practice the Ochethi Sakowin values, or virtues that are culturally identified ideals for being in this world. Rather than abstract 和 elusive philosophical principles to be strived after, 然而, these qualities are essential elements of one’s everyday life.
As the Ochethi Sakowin author Joseph Marshall points out, they are instilled in us as firmly 和 as specifically as American courtesies like saying “please” 和 “thank you” . . . I knew growing up that at some point I was supposed to be the things I learned in the stories: compassionate, 可敬的, 和勇敢, 和 so forth . . . The virtues espoused by the stories . . . are the foundation 和 moral sustenance of Ochethi Sakowin culture. (Marshall,
The Ochethi Sakowin Way
There are numerous virtues, 和 while individuals may identify different virtues or order them variously according to significance, the underlying theme is always the same: expectations for individual behavior 和 character that ensure balance 和 well-being within society – human 和 beyond. In Marshall’s words, “There is nothing more important.”
The following Ochethi Sakowin values have been adopted as a guide for students to follow during their educational journey at Sitting Bull College.
Wóohola (Respect): SBC family should be thoughtful 和 considerate towards property, policies 和 people including themselves, fellow students, 教师, 工作人员, 和 visitors.
