Becoming part of the PRME community was a desirable strategic decision for Winchester as it resonates with the mission and values that are at the foundation of the University.
"The mission of the University of Winchester is to educate, to advance knowledge and to serve the public good."
Values of the University of Winchester
We value freedom, justice, human rights and collective effort for the public good. The plans and actions of the University of Winchester are founded in these ideals together with the following values:
- Intellectual freedom
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.
We delight in diversity
We celebrate our Christian foundation encouraging those living within the Christian faith, whilst also welcoming those who live within other faiths and those who have no faith.

The wellbeing of individuals is important, as are their opinions and views.
Permeability, agility and imagination are central to our thinking: we endeavour to act as a crucible for the generation and exchange of knowledge.
