Our Values


Listening to each other is more than an important learning event; It is a valuable and exciting experience. By listening, we learn. With additional knowledge comes greater power.



Understanding brings a sense of order and reason for our actions. As we learn to understand the changes in the profession, as well as our group, we pave the path for PIHRA Cal Lutheran’s continuous success.



We have pride in what we collaborate to the group. Together we optimize PIHRA Cal Lutheran in its mission. We know that we are what makes PIHRA Cal Lutheran a success.



Although many fear change, we embrace it. We are aware that some of us will graduate, and our roles will change within the group, but our mission remains the same. We view change as a wondrous adventure, not an imposition. We change to meet the needs of PIHRA Cal Lutheran.
