Our core values

At USQ our values guide us in our working lives to enable us to realise the University Strategy.

Respect for the individual

We respect and recognise the contribution made by individuals, ensure participatory and inclusive decision making, appreciate the importance of open engagement and meaningful partnerships, and care for the individual through approaches that are fair, inclusive and equitable

Success for students

We strive for success for our students by being open and approachable, creating a safe learning environment, developing skill, providing students with opportunities to succeed and by respecting individual differences, backgrounds and experiences.

Social responsibility

We are committed to ensuring our operations and learning experiences support sustainable development, social justice and multiculturalism and we appreciate the value of difference and diversity, ensuring individual and institutional integrity and accountability.

Free intellectual inquiry

We encourage lifelong learning, scholarly excellence, intellectual integrity and academic freedom as well as appreciating the importance of open engagement and meaningful partnerships.

Excellence, innovation and creativity

We support research and development that contributes to new knowledge and a better quality of life, with real innovation rather than change for change sake. We respond to changing needs without compromise to quality.

If you share these core values and are committed to bringing these to life in an environment that provides you with the opportunity to succeed personally, professionally and organisationally then we encourage you to join the USQ community.
