The Values story starts with our College Strategy: 2020 - 2025. The development of our Values links directly to us achieving the College Mission:

  • Imperial embodies and delivers world-class scholarship, education and research in science, engineering, medicine and business, with particular regard to their application in industry, commerce and healthcare.
  • We foster multidisciplinary working internally and collaborate widely externally.

Our Strategy

  • We will build a supportive, inclusive and highly motivated staff community across all disciplines, functions and activities. This will help us to attract and retain the talented and diverse staff we need to achieve our mission.
  • We need to harness our collective strength to deliver our mission. This requires a supportive and considerate community based on diversity, mutual respect and a commitment to excellence. The framework of Imperial expectations and values guides the behaviour of all our staff.
  • We will create an environment which is respectful and collaborative and has a zero-tolerance approach to bullying and harassment. Excellence comes not just from ‘what’ we do, but also ‘how’ we do it.
  • We will promote a culture where all who show a commitment to excellence are recognised and given respect, whatever their role or field.
  • We will create a positive and enabling workplace which enables all staff to deliver excellence.
