From the Mission Statement of Ghost Ranch
Hospitality and service are cornerstone values that permeate every facet of life at the Ranch. Each staff member is called to work joyfully, and to be prepared to extend hospitality and service to each other, to the guests, and to the local community. For example, the College Staff helps the ever-busy kitchen staff by cleaning the tables in the Dining Hall after meals. If a guest needs assistance finding a building on campus, we welcome the opportunity to guide them. When the maintenance staff seeks aide in setting up classroom chairs, we pitch in.
