Core Competencies

Core Competencies Framework

The AUC Core Competencies are our internal enterprise, developed to enable and support our growth aspirations.

We developed the Competencies Framework around 10 themes that outline the agreed-upon rules and expectations that guide our behaviors and uphold the University strategy. Additionally, we provide world-class training and development to address our community’s needs across all functions.

Fundamentally, the University competencies are the backbone of our organization, so we have made them an integral part of the employee journey.

The AUC Competencies framework ensures that we all speak the same language. We are building an organization that supports every person in their own professional journey.
