Our mission, vision and values
We’ve been transforming lives, communities and businesses for over 120 years
Mission and vision
Our mission is to be recognised as an enterprising civic university that addresses real world challenges.
By 2020, we want to be London’s top modern university and our Corporate Strategy 2015–2020 (PDF File 749 KB) sets out how we’ll achieve this vision:
We want to be recognised for providing a personalised and practical education that will set graduates up for a successful career and prepare them to hit the ground running.
We make sure we have the right facilities, systems and people to deliver our strategy.
Our values are EPIIC
Our staff and students embody and embrace our values of:
- We are known for working to a high standard and providing a quality service to all.
- Everyone takes personal accountability and responsibility, leads by example and inspires others.
