That's a reasonable question. The 14 schools, while diverse, have a number of things in common:
- A commitment to academic excellence and the liberal arts;
- An environment of open inquiry;
- An inclusive, welcoming community that respects all people and cultures;
- A focus on character, service, and leadership; and
