World Values Day 2019: Why Winchester values values

17 Oct 2019

At the University of Winchester, our values - compassion, individuals matter and spirituality - underpin everything that we do, from our high-quality teaching and learning to our world-leading research and other activities. They guide all our decisions and how we work and live together.

We are world-leading in delivering values-driven higher education, which drives our passion to make a difference in the world and see communities and individuals flourish.

Every student studying at Winchester has an opportunity to take a module offered by the Institute for Values Studies. The Institute brings students and staff together to grapple with fundamental questions about ideas which have significance for us all, including love, justice, beauty, faith and others.

Today, on World Values Day 2019, staff and students have been revealing what our values mean to them personally by posting on our 'values wall'.

As World Values Day this year falls during our annual Graduation ceremonies, we asked our Vice-Chancellor Professor Joy Carter CBE, DL and some of our honorary graduates why it's so important to have values.
