In an ever-changing world, Taft's founding values endure: work hard, develop all of your talents, academic, artist, and athletic: and most important, give of yourself to others. Taft is a place where faculty and staff members grow professionally, build strong personal relationships, and help shape the future, one student at a time. We consciously work to build a professional community that is diverse in perspectives, talents, and experiences. Taft is a truly global community! Students and faculty represent 44 different countries and 33 different states.
