Our Mission

  • Provide widely-accessible opportunities for lifelong learning, underpinned by scholarship and research.
  • Extend and deepen the University’s external contribution regionally, nationally and globally.
  • Foster a supportive, creative, critical and reflective community which promotes personal and professional development for both students and staff.
