Our values are the words that we use to describe how we behave as an organisation. They define how we go about our work and activities.

Student Led

We place students at the heart of everything that we do, so that decisions are made for the benefit of our members.


We look to the future, seeking new opportunities and partnerships. We are progressive, creative and happy to work in collaboration with others.


We foster a sense of understanding and mutual respect amongst the whole student body, making our opportunities, activities and services accessible for all students.


We are committed to making sure all students enjoy their time at the University of Plymouth and that all our staff enjoy working for the SU.


We provide opportunities for our students and staff to develop their life skills, to use their initiative and make a positive difference to their lives and communities.
