We love a good party. Whether it's a decorating contest at Halloween or a surprise ice cream social, we enjoy each others' company and host events throughout the year.

We believe a set of key values that guide how we work and what we create.

Our Values

The Ellucian values reflect the best of who we are today and what we hope to be in the future. They unite us and guide us in powering the essential work of institutions around the globe.

Be the company everyone wants to work with and for. Fuel contagious passion. Be admired by our customers, community, and employees for being wildly innovative and fiercely confident in our ability to deliver—and having lots of fun along the way.

Be the trusted advisors our customers depend on. Care enough about customers to provide the outstanding technology, services and intellectual honesty they need to be amazing places of learning.

Take bold risks to be the best. Be comfortable with uncertainty. Take action. Blast through barriers. Refuse to accept mediocrity. Fight to be the undisputed leader in higher education technology and solutions.

Triumph and fail together by being personally responsible for business outcomes. Reach across organizational and geographic boundaries to make our vision a reality. Do what it takes to achieve what others didn’t think possible. Celebrate our successes.

Be honest with yourself, your colleagues, and your customers. Leave your egos at the door and be open to giving and receiving direct feedback. Take on conflict consciously, speaking with insight, truth, and respect.

Move forward in the smartest ways possible. Balance reflection with action to get quality results. Achieve the goal—not just the deadline. Go beyond to get astounding results.

Push each other to grow as individuals and as teams. Support each other in being authentic, taking on challenges, creating connections, and bringing out the very best in each of us.
