'To educate, to advance knowledge and to serve the common good'
We value freedom, justice, truth, human rights and collective effort for the common good. The plans and actions of the University of Winchester are founded in these ideals together with the following values:
Conscious of the kinship that exists between all life, we seek to nurture compassion for people, animals and the planet.
Permeability, agility and imagination are central to our thinking: we endeavour to act as a crucible for the generation and exchange of knowledge.
Diversity, Equality and Inclusion
We value diversity and we are committed to ensuring a welcoming and inclusive experience and strive to ensure quality for all.
The wellbeing of individuals is important, as are their opinions and views.
Intellectual freedom and its appropriate expression are at the heart of our business.
We seek to embody social justice and develop our students as effective and fulfilled global citizens. They will be prepared to challenge the status quo and will have the strength to stand up for what they believe to be true.
The University celebrates its Christian foundation, and welcomes people of all faiths and none. Together, we aim to explore the mystery of life and to grow in wisdom and love.
