In higher education, guiding principles are the compass that helps institutions navigate toward their mission, vision, and goals. At Millersville University, we hold these principles close to our hearts, shaping our academic community’s actions and aspirations. These values, collectively known as EPPIIC – Excellence, Professionalism, Public Mission, Integrity, Inclusiveness, and Compassion – are the foundation on which we build our educational legacy.

Dr. Barry Atticks, a Tell School of Music faculty member, has been awarded an EPPIIC Value Award (EVA). The EPPIIC Value Award is a testament to the dedication and commitment of faculty and staff who consistently demonstrate these core values in their roles or whose contributions significantly advance the university’s strategic goals.
