Our Vision and ambition
At the University of Reading we are committed to addressing global problems through our teaching, research and partnerships.
Our University Strategy highlights the core values that characterise the University of Reading: a love of learning; creating and sharing new knowledge; embracing and celebrating diversity of people and ideas; and caring for our environment. We have maintained these values throughout our history and they will continue to guide us in the future as we transform the way we work.
The Strategy provides a shared set of values for the whole University community, to inform decisions as we approach our centenary in 2026. It sets out the key objectives for the University and also the ways in which we will review and guide our performance, holding ourselves to account using a range of internal measures and external benchmarks such as People and Planet and the Times Higher Education rankings.
