We are committed to nurturing the holistic development of our staff and students – their academic, social, emotional, physical, cultural and spiritual well-being.
We pursue excellence in the generation of new knowledge and encourage creativity, fun and the exploration of truth.
We are dedicated to creating sustainable futures across the communities we serve.
We are responsive to the needs of all stakeholders and strive to enhance all aspects of our services to students, communities and the organisations that we work with.
We value each member of the university and are committed to relationships characterised by respect for the individual.
We promote a climate of trust and accountability underpinned by a commitment to open, honest and transparent communications.
These values and commitments inform our four main strategic priorities: Achieving Inspirational Learning, Transforming Students’ Lives, Delivering Research Excellence, and Creating a Sustainable University.
Cross-cutting themes run through all of these priorities, these include: nurturing our local and regional communities, engaging with employers, participating in global education, developing an enterprising environment for our students and staff, and promoting sustainability thinking and practice.
