As individuals charged with guiding the philanthropic efforts of Hilbert College by growing the extended Hilbert family and telling the College's story, we consider it a privilege to work with the members of the Hilbert Community while promoting our Franciscan Values:

     * Hope...The desire for a future good, joined with perseverance and trust that it can be attained with 
       God's help.
     * Peace...God's love radiating from the core of one's being to others, resulting in non-violence,
reconciliation, and harmony.
     * Service...Selflessly working and advocating for the well-being of others, especially the poor, the
        under-educated, and those in need.
     * Joy...A conviction - outwardly manifested in an exuberant demeanor - that throughout the good
        and despite the bad times in life, the Spirt of God is always within us.
     * Integrity...Firm adherence to doing what is right no matter what the circumstances may be.
     * Respect...Recognition and reverence for God's presence in all creation including ourselves, others, 
        and the environment.
     * Compassion...Heartfelt concern for another person's suffering or need, accompanied by action to
        help better the situation.
     * Vision...The ability to imagine what can be done with God's help.
