- Cooperation - Cooperate is to work together in a healthy relationship of interdependence, for common goals and mutual benefits. Cooperation strengthens team spirit, solidarity, and instills our capacity to share information, knowledge and experiences.
- Transparency - It is the responsible and double-handed practice of truth and integrity, which implies coherence between what is thought and what is done, considering the points of view of others.
- Respect - It is to be aware of our rights and obligations, as well as the other, understanding and accepting individual differences and asserting our regard for human values.
- Commitment - It is to look beyond personal interests, the interests of others and the institution, making a commitment to building a better world.
- Innovation - It's different. It is to develop the capacity to imagine what does not exist. It is questioning the routine and the habits. It is learning to live with the unknown, the different, the amazing and the new. It is turning the dream into reality.
