The University of Hull is operating in an increasingly complex, challenging and competitive environment.  

We have therefore developed a renewed, ambitious and distinctive vision for the University – to shape a fairer, brighter, carbon-neutral future for all. That vision gives us a shared sense of purpose and direction, and something we can be all be proud to be a part of.  

As a part of this, we have committed to becoming the first University in the country to become Carbon Neutral, in time for our centenary year in 2027.

Our values – inclusive, empowering and progressive reflect who we are and how we work to create a culture for success, as we continue to evolve to ensure that we adapt at pace to meet the needs of our students, collaborators and partners.
