Introduction

Educational institution, public or private are trustees of the educational and cultural
heritage of the nation. It is therefore their obligation to elevate national morality to promote
justice social pride, to cultivate love of country to instill respect for constituted authority and
inculcate obedience to the laws of the state.

This university as catalyst of change uphold holistic development of an individual. It


enhances the total personality of the students, likewise it emphasizes the value of integration.

According to Conklin (1994), values are abstract and shared ideas about what is
desirable, good or correct, they represents the ideals of the culture. Values are moral imperatives
and feelings about what should be or not be, what is good and bad, what is desirable or
undesirable. They express the general goals and not broad guidelines for the society. They are
the expectation of how we should present the self in different settings. For Christians,
fundamental moral values are found in the Ten Commandments.

Values are the bases of determining what behavior and attitude are correct. They are
emotion laden. The members of the culture share a value such as religiosity or honor because
they feel that it is right. A culture’s value are organized in a hierarchy or a set of priorities. The
hierarchy of values is not always apparent, but it can be observed when there is a conflict of
values and selection between them is to be made.

Like the other aspects of culture, values differ from one society to another. What is
desirable in our society maybe contemptible in another. Or something maybe held dear as
religion but maybe considered as sacrilegious in another.

The school, as an institution is an agent in transmitting values and as a mentors, we have


the obligation of imparting them to students. Our responsibility is not only to provide them
learning opportunity and knowledge but to enhance moral attitudes. Hence, this study was
conducted.
