Our values

With a mission focused on fairness and a vision to inspire human brilliance, people must be at the heart of our university.

Our values reflect this focus on people. In the decisions we make, the actions we take and the way we do things we will be guided by them.

These are the things that matter the most to us to help us get things done. Who we are, how we are and what we do will all be values-led.

They have been shaped by our people, informed by our heritage and inspired by our ambition.

If our mission grounds us in our history and our vision prepares us for our future, then our values guide us on our journey. They define how we behave and what we expect of one another.

Our values

Being intellectually generous, curious and rigorous.

We share our knowledge, experience and practice with each other and our communities for wider social benefit. We foster inquisitiveness with passion and enthusiasm for exploring and developing knowledge, so we can be the best at what we do.

Promoting fairness and challenging prejudice.

We are deeply committed to diversity and advancing social justice. We focus on widening access to higher education, as we have since our foundation in 1841. Our inclusive environment and commitment to equality nurture a strong sense of belonging within our community.

Inspiring each other to succeed.

People matter to us. We treat others with trust and respect and promote support and challenge. We find inspiration from learning from each other.
