Our values

As a portfolio, our work is inspired and informed by the shared values that help the University achieve its strategic goals. They are:

  • Courage and Creativity
  • Respect and Integrity
  • Openness and Engagement
  • Inclusion and Diversity

Since its foundation in 1850, the University’s enduring educational mission
has been to equip the most promising students with the knowledge, skills,
values and purpose to serve society at every level and to lead the way in
improving people’s lives. We remain committed to that mission, and now give
it contemporary expression: our mission is to provide graduates with the
skills, knowledge and values they need to thrive and lead in a rapidly changing
world. To deliver on that mission, we have radically rethought our approach to
undergraduate education, offering a model that is unique in Australia.
