Our Values

Our Values are at the heart of everything we do. They were developed by our staff, are inspired by the stories of our students, by our history and by our hopes and ambitions for the future. They encourage both the ability and the aspiration to improve lives for all.

Put simply, everyone at Marjon expects their colleagues to behave with fairness and decency, both to each other and to students. You can expect the same in return from your peers and from the University as a whole. We are wholeheartedly committed to being an inclusive and fair community where every voice counts. We’re not perfect, but if we ever fail at this, we want to know.


We are student-centred, making a difference to individuals and society.

We create human connections and community.


We achieve more by working together and sharing our achievements.

We empower people to be the best they can be.


We push boundaries and enjoy searching for a better way.

We encourage potential and possibility.


We nurture self-belief, independence and wellbeing.

We encourage diverse views and independent thought.

We also expect you to commit yourself wholeheartedly to the broader principles and spirit of our Values. We expect you, whatever your role, to encourage ambition and independence, being an empowering force both within your teams and with the students you have contact with. We expect you to bring a positive spirit of curious inquiry to everything you do, always questioning how things could be done better for students, for your colleagues, or for the University as a whole. We expect you to thank colleagues for a job well done and to share achievements together.

We live by these values. We have big ambitions, but above all we are people focused and we expect humanity and grace from all those who work for us.
