Our Culture

Values we live by

At Coventry University Group we truly believe that societal advancement is achieved through a powerful education, but we also recognise the historical inequalities of society and are committed to a continual drive for equality and inclusion – from our perspective, access to a quality education should be a right, not a privilege. Finding solutions to real world challenges is at the heart of our curriculum, transdisciplinary research, innovation, and knowledge exchange activities.

Our mission focuses on creating better futures – but we cannot do that alone.

Our culture and behaviours are aligned to our mission, vision, and values, and we are clear in how people make a difference to our success. It is the difference that our people can make that matters to us and we will act with honesty and integrity, staying true to our mission and values, taking responsibility for our actions, and giving leadership to others.


We respect and value the contribution of colleagues, stakeholders, partners and communities to deliver real and beneficial impact.
