Culture and values

Realising ambitions together

We’ve got a single‑minded direction: realising ambitions together. Our people have a positive, can-do attitude which helps us realise these ambitions.

For our students, staff, the businesses and communities we support, and our many education and commercial partners, we collaborate to deliver tangible results.

To work here we hope you share our values as well as appreciate our goals and direction. For more detailed information about where we are heading, please read our Strategy.

Working with our values


We are determined to achieve our goals and continually strive to enhance our University for the benefit of all.


We will apply our collective and individual creativity to conceive and develop new ideas, implementing them for the benefit of the communities we serve.


We are bold in taking the decisions we feel are right, even when it is difficult to do so.


We greatly value working collaboratively, supporting each other and helping everyone to achieve their potential.


We do what we say we will do and are fair and transparent in our decision-making and actions.


We take decisions and act in a way which respects environmental, societal and economic considerations, and which best supports those who study and work with us.

We're inclusive - read more about Equality, Diversity and Inclusion at Anglia Ruskin.
