Our vision is to be a sustainable, socially responsible and pioneering University on a local, national and global scale.

Our Corporate Social Responsibility Framework details how we will deliver this vision and incorporates three key themes.

Leadership

We celebrate equality and diversity, cherish culture, embrace difference and individuality and promote well-being. We will continue to create a rich, dynamic, and inspirational University based on world-leading research, absorbing teaching, and enterprising education.

Community

The most powerful platform for change is partnership, and at Westminster, we’re proud to work together with communities at a local, national and global level. We collaborate with partners, our suppliers and external stakeholders in business, industry and the professions in ways that are both socially responsible and mutually beneficial for students, staff and the University.

Westminster has a proud heritage of providing education for all; with students from more than 150 different countries we have one of the largest international student bodies in the UK. Against this backdrop of diversity and internationalism, we are determined to inspire the next generation of global citizens, professional leaders, and lifelong learners, who will take the ethos of ‘change for good’ with them onto the world stage.

Sustainability

At the University of Westminster, we have been making great strides towards reducing the environmental impact of campus operations and activities. From incorporating sustainability into procurement to supporting staff and student-led projects, sustainable practices and policies are building up across the University. To help with this commitment to continuous environmental improvements, the University participates in the Eco Campus scheme and currently holds a Gold certificate for our sustainability programme.
