University values

Principles that guide the activities are crystallised in the values of the university community. University values are:

  • Creating new
  • Taking responsibility
  • Succeeding together

The formulation of values is based on an on-line brainstorming session held in April with about 550 participants connected with the university: students, staff, alumni, and representatives of the University's Board of Directors. Those taking part in the session were asked to define sources of pride for the future, to prioritise the ideas of other respondents, and finally to consider different ways to achieve the goals.
