Our values and expectations
Values define what makes St George’s a distinctive community, guiding our behaviours and shaping our culture. In all our interactions, we believe in acting with integrity.
"The diversity of the people within our community at St George’s is one of our strengths. The university benefits hugely from the range of perspectives that come from the different backgrounds, opinions and beliefs of our staff and students and, in recognising that, we want to put our approach to diversity and inclusion firmly at our core. It is not an optional extra."
— Professor Jenny Higham

Promoting good campus relations
We aim to protect staff and students of all backgrounds from intimidation, harassment and violent behaviour and have developed a Promoting Good Campus Relations policy to ensure all freedom of speech at St George’s remains lawful.
We also have a Good Campus Relations Group which aims to ensure all students, staff and visitors at our University experience a postive, safe and stimulating environment. The group takes a consultative approach with staff and students to consider and address situations and proposals that may have a bearing on good campus relations and works together to foster a positive and productive environment.
