Our Values

The University’s values capture our ethos: who we are, what we believe in and what we stand for. Our values set out how we conduct ourselves, how we expect to be treated as part of Strathclyde and how we engage with our partners. In delivering this Strategic Plan, we will act and make decisions guided by these values.

  • People-oriented: committed to our staff and students, providing opportunities and investing in their development
  • Bold: confident and challenging about what we do, and supportive of appropriate and managed risk in our decision-making
  • Innovative: focused on discovering and applying knowledge with impact, and encouraging creative thinking and new ideas
  • Collaborative: working together, internally and externally, with integrity and in an open, respectful way
  • Ambitious: for our institution, staff and students as well as supporting the ambitions of our partners
