Auburn is a national power which competes at the highest level of intercollegiate athletics. Those first learning about Auburn must understand our program's core traditions are passion and spirit. Those are the hallmarks of the Auburn Family, no matter if the Tigers are competing across the country or within the SEC.
The Auburn Athletics Department will be the nation's preeminent Athletics
Department. We have a two-fold purpose:
(1) to enable our student-athletes to be
successful in all areas of their lives, athletics, academics and personal
endeavors, both now and in their future careers, by providing them with the best
resources available in academics, facilities and coaching;
while meeting the
needs of our student-athletes, to represent and promote Auburn University in a
positive manner in all that we do.
The absolute values of the Auburn Athletics Department are to always tell the
truth and to treat others as we would like to be treated.
We will also adhere to
the timeless values of the Auburn Creed
. We will lead the way in integrity,
diversity, communications, both internally and externally, compliance, and
We will function as a team, helping each other to be successful, rather than
focusing on personal success. We will work for the benefit of others and for
Auburn, not for personal gain. We will have an attitude of constructive
discontent; always striving to be better.
The Athletics Department, in keeping with the mission of the University, and in a
spirit of inclusion, encouraging diversity and equitable treatment for all, will seek to
abide by the rules, to manage its fiscal affairs in a responsible manner, to educate its
student-athletes, and to win championships, thereby bringing credit to Auburn and its
