For advancement of learning and ennoblement of life. This has been our mission since the University was founded in 1881. To this day, these values focus our efforts as we strive to achieve our ambitions and tackle the grand challenges of the age.
Our aim is to support our students as they become highly employable, creative, and culturally rich graduates, with the capacity to find employment that will enable them to be agents for change in a connected world. We’re as diverse as the city we’re part of, with a vibrant student community drawn from across the country and around the world. On and off campus, you’ll meet people and ideas of every kind. It makes learning here a uniquely rich experience. And it shows that, when it comes to our roots, we’re as open and accessible as we’ve always been.
