Culture Code

The University of Illinois Foundation Culture Code was introduced in February 2022 as a framework for living the five shared core values of the university’s Development Program which are: Exemplify Integrity, Practice Empathy, Embrace Collaboration, Inspire Innovation, and Enable Impact. More than 100 individuals from throughout the Foundation and all three universities helped develop and refine the code, which includes, “We Will” statements to exemplify how the values can be put into action.

The information below provides background on the project to develop the culture code and shares the final documents for your reference. If you have any questions, please direct them to Diana Joyce.
