Values and Ethics Principles

As part of its commitment to employee engagement the University consulted with staff to develop a set of University of Liverpool Values and Ethics Principles. These values and ethics communicate our practices and aspirations that define how we operate in all areas including decision making, working in partnership with our students and collaborators, local and global impact, and staff offer.


For all employees, we aim to create a culture of openness, transparency, and respect, where staff work together for the future success of the University.

We will review and refresh our values from time to time to ensure they reflect the changing environment in which we work and what matters to us as employees of the University in the context of the wider organisational strategic goals.

We will encourage an inclusive culture, treat each other with respect and celebrate our diversity.
