Our values

Our values

We are a university that is ambitious for others. A place where people can be inspired to realise their potential and begin life-changing journeys. Where innovation is sparked by curiosity, and collaboration means working together to solve problems and challenge the status quo. An inclusive community that stands up for equality and speaks up for diversity. An open-minded place, where everyone can thrive and belong. This is what makes us Sheffield Hallam University.

Our values represent the beliefs, philosophies, and principles that we believe can transform lives. They provide a platform for everyone, from students and staff to colleagues and partners, to be the best they can be.
