It takes Courage and an Open Mind

At Campus International we are courageous and open-minded as we take risks, learn and experience new things.

We are OPEN-MINDED

We critically appreciate our own cultures and personal histories, as well as the values and traditions of others. We seek and evaluate a range of points of view, and we are willing to grow from the experience.

We are RISK-TAKERS

We approach uncertainty with forethought and determination; we work independently and cooperatively to explore new ideas and innovative strategies. We are resourceful and resilient in the face of challenges and change.

These entrepreneurs needed to “work independently and cooperatively to explore new ideas and innovative strategies. We are resourceful and resilient in the face of challenges and change.”
They worked hard and learned a lot and took time to reflect and consider their growth. Kindergarten and Grade One students loved the items they purchased. Profits will be donated to our neighbors at the Norma Herr Women’s Center.
