We will operate according to the Nolan Principles of Public Life and furthermore be guided by the following values:
We are committed to accountable autonomy within and for the institution as a whole.
Freedom of enquiry
We uphold the right to curiosity-driven investigation that may or may not have practical application. Through peer review in its broadest sense, the quality of research is expected to be of the highest standard.
Collegiality, leadership and management
We encourage collegiality, which is essential to university life, and promote the leadership and management necessary for the effective and responsible use of university resources. We will strive to support the well-being of our staff and students.
Equality, diversity and inclusion
We are committed to equal pay, treatment and opportunity, to supporting diversity and creating an open and inclusive community.
We promote sustainability education and enable students and staff to make positive changes to our environmental impact.
We are committed to creating the necessary surplus both to invest for the future and for insurance against unexpected adverse events.
We will fulfil our civic mission and broader social responsibilities and are committed to the Welsh language.
