Shaping our University’s values

Tue, 28 May 2019 10:58:00 BST

Last year as part of the University’s development of a new strategy we asked all our staff what type of University we wanted to be. During these conversations colleagues wanted to talk about ‘how we do things’. They talked about systems and processes but they also talked about our culture and values and that there is something distinctive about our city and University both now and in our past.

Now as a direct response we’re involving colleagues in uncovering a single set of University values which will be at the heart of our University’s new strategic plan under the Our People Our Values theme. As part of this work, we’re also asking for staffs' views on our University’s existing guiding principles and values.

We want everyone who works at the University to have the opportunity to get involved by sharing their stories and experiences. They will be analysed to help uncover those values which collectively are important to our University. Staff can contribute anonymously by completing this survey. This takes only a few minutes to do and is open until the end of July.
