Shared Values - The philosophy of First-Year Programs is echoed by the administrative assistant, graduate assistants, instructors and peer leaders. • Physical Layout – Graduate students are housed in a separate location from the director and administrative assistant. • “separate offices symbolizes the trust and confidence in her work” (M. Bunton, personal communication, April 30, 2012). Organizational Culture
