We create positive change in our students, staff, business partners and wider communities, enabling them to develop their full potential by providing excellent higher education, innovation and research.
The University will be innovative and entrepreneurial in our approach to research and knowledge exchange in order to maximise our positive social, environmental and economic impact locally, nationally and globally.
The University operates in a global market place. Our activities, from our internationally focused research to our curriculum and study opportunities will be international in their outlook.
The University will continue to inspire positive change in organisations and people from all walks of life, enabling them to achieve their full potential.
We will further strengthen our financial stability, growing income from a diverse range of sources, so enabling continual reinvestment in our people and infrastructure.
The UCLan Values define a framework for the decisions, action and behaviour and they are a promise to people about how they will be treated. These are currently being embedded into the recruitment of new staff, appraisals, promotion and reward, and have been defined as:
“I love the warmth and good humour of our staff, and they deserve the best working environment, which is why these value should guide how we are together.”
