A shared sense of purpose, together with a common set of values, is fundamental to a rewarding culture.
Following university-wide consultation with staff and students, four core values have emerged – Integrity, Courage, Innovation and Excellence, and above all an ethos that is Student Centred.
Our collective success depends upon the achievements of our people, and it is our culture that sustains success into the future.
We champion diversity and equality of opportunity, respecting
peoples from all nations, cultures and backgrounds.
My actions shall speak to the world.
Matthew Flinders, 1804
Our success relies on dynamic staff, ready to embrace the challenges and opportunities presented in a rapidly changing environment. It requires a culture of trust and empowerment, built on the bedrock of common values and a shared sense of purpose.
Experiment and experiment bravely
Flinders University founding Vice-Chancellor, Professor Peter Karmel
Research and creative endeavour have been at the core of Flinders University's identity since inception.
Together we are meeting the challenges of a globally competitive environment by maintaining an uncompromising commitment to excellence in everything that we do.
Together, these CORE VALUES and UNDERLYING ETHOS define the way we carry out our work and study, INFORM the DECISIONS we make, underpin the policies we develop, and guide how we interact with each other and with our STAKEHOLDERS.
They are the common touchstones that SHAPE our shared culture and the foundations upon which our FUTURE SUCCESS is built.
