Goal Four: Engage our communities


Value our staff and students, and encourage them to contribute and achieve their potential.

Our students are the heart of the Warwick experience and must be active partners in its evolution. We’ll continue to develop students as valued members of our community, as leaders in their own right, and as citizens with a significant part to play in the future economy and global society.

Those other key members of our community – our staff – must also be properly recognised for their vital contribution to the University’s success. We value our people above all else and will continue to investigate new ways to encourage and reward the input and impact of everyone at Warwick.

We’ll also remain true to the principles of Equality & Diversity and Dignity at Work & Study.
