IAUSM CORE VALUES

You agree to adhere to and uphold the IAUSM core values at all times. Should these values be compromised in any way by a faculty member or a student, we will issue a strict warning. If it happens again, the individual in question will be discontinued from our platform.

Respect.

The IAUSM community respects the wealth of experience, wisdom, and knowledge that our faculty have brought forth in offering empowering courses to our students. Their time, videos, audios, and written work are regarded as valuable pieces of the IAUSM puzzle, and recognized as tools for learning by the student body. In turn, students are respected for their willingness to learn, grow and apply teachings that will result in positive lifestyle and/or business transformations. Finally, IAUSM respects the confidentiality of our student body and requests that all sensitive and personal information shared between students and instructors be kept private. 

Integrity. 

We hold self-mastery as the predominant focal point in which all courses, events, groups and conversations stem. We choose to engage honestly as a community, help people to evolve powerfully, and convey kindness in our interactions as a whole. We recognize and celebrate our differences, and utilize any discordant experiences as an opportunity to master the art of tolerance, and unconditional love, while preserving healthy personal boundaries. 

Encouragement.

We encourage growth and development of peers by supporting discussions in a constructive way. We also encourage empowerment, the ability to see each other as sovereign and powerful people, within ALL conversations. When we recognize another is at a sticking point, we offer our support and guidance WHEN we are equipped to do so. 

Equality.

Above all else, we are all human, and our differences are what make us AUSM. In that light, we are proud of our differences, including; our cultures, our languages and our individual AUSMness. In accordance with this, we treat each other with equal respect across the board, so that all faculty and students are given an undifferentiated opportunity to thrive in this beautiful community. 

Open-Mindedness.

Perception and belief are very personal things. We are proponents for an open-minded approach, even in cases where we can agree to disagree. We understand that condemning an idea or thought, closes the doors to learning. Additionally, the diversity of knowledge presented on our platform will resonate with our students in accordance with their personal interests. We encourage students to expand their thinking and explore new thought-models that invigorate the mind, body or soul.
