  • Mis­sion Statement

    Edge Hill Uni­ver­sity pro­vides an inno­v­a­tive, high qual­ity and inclu­sive learn­ing expe­ri­ence under­pinned by a com­mit­ment to the advance­ment, dis­sem­i­na­tion and appli­ca­tion of knowl­edge.

    • Act with integrity
    • Demon­strate cour­tesy in its dealings

    Vision 2015

    In 2015 Edge Hill Uni­ver­sity will be a lead­ing uni­ver­sity of choice for stu­dents and for staff in the region. As a learning-​led uni­ver­sity we will be acknowl­edged for our excel­lence in sup­port­ing stu­dent learn­ing, for our excel­lence in teach­ing, learn­ing, research and advanced schol­ar­ship and for our con­tin­u­ing capac­ity for organ­i­sa­tional learn­ing and devel­op­ment. The University’s exem­plary per­for­mance in increas­ing access and pro­gres­sion to higher edu­ca­tion, and in sup­port­ing learn­ing, will have achieved an inter­na­tional rep­u­ta­tion in those areas.

    Teach­ing and learn­ing will be led by strong teams of aca­d­e­mics and an extended net­work of learn­ing sup­port pro­fes­sion­als. Learn­ing will be inno­v­a­tive and flex­i­ble, sup­ported by high qual­ity resources in an envi­ron­ment which fos­ters inde­pen­dent and inter­de­pen­dent learn­ing within a chal­leng­ing and inclu­sive cul­ture. Edge Hill grad­u­ates will be recog­nised as rounded pro­fes­sion­als, as crit­i­cal research-​informed prac­ti­tion­ers and as active cit­i­zens who can add value to their com­mu­ni­ties, to the socioe­co­nomic devel­op­ment of the region, to the nation and beyond.

    The University’s intel­lec­tual cap­i­tal of advanced schol­ar­ship and research will inform teach­ing and its trans­ac­tions with its com­mu­ni­ties. Research cen­tres, each with a crit­i­cal mass of self-​sustaining research activ­ity amongst staff and research stu­dents, and with devel­op­ing lev­els of exter­nal income, will dis­sem­i­nate and pro­mote their work. Knowl­edge Trans­fer activ­i­ties, antic­i­pat­ing and respond­ing to exter­nal demand, will draw on the work of these cen­tres wher­ever pos­si­ble. Edge Hill Uni­ver­sity will make a lead­ing national research con­tri­bu­tion to higher edu­ca­tion practice.

    Edge Hill, as an entre­pre­neur­ial and socially respon­si­ble Uni­ver­sity, will lead artis­tic, cul­tural and sport devel­op­ments in the region and will have devel­oped, build­ing on its range of cur­rent part­ners, a net­work of aca­d­e­mic and employer part­ners beyond the region. Euro­pean and other inter­na­tional part­ner­ships will pros­per through the University’s grow­ing rep­u­ta­tion, and the University’s work will reflect its mem­ber­ship of the global com­mu­nity and the respon­si­bil­i­ties which that implies.

    The Orm­skirk cam­pus will con­tinue to develop as the hub of a dis­trib­uted learn­ing net­work, and will pro­vide a high qual­ity learn­ing, work­ing, social and liv­ing envi­ron­ment. Other cam­puses and out­reach cen­tres in the region and beyond will pro­vide sup­port for learn­ing wher­ever it is needed. All admin­is­tra­tive ser­vices will be web-​enabled and avail­able on demand.

    The Uni­ver­sity will be recog­nised for its con­tri­bu­tions to enhanc­ing qual­ity and assur­ing stan­dards. Cen­tral to the University’s learn­ing cul­ture will be the capac­ity to inno­vate, ini­ti­ate and respond to change.
