Tees Valley is one of the country's best kept secrets. We've got top surf, a national park on the doorstep plus unique shopping and culture, bars and famous clubs.
Given the mission, vision and character, the University has established a number of fundamental principles to inform and direct the future direction of its activities:
the primary importance of remaining autonomous and ‘financially viable’ in the increasingly turbulent UK higher education environment
retaining, and further reinforcing, Teesside’s character and status as a University (not a college or training company) that invests in, values and capitalises upon applied research, innovation and knowledge exchange
maintaining, and further enhancing the University’s position as a business facing and business engaged University
retaining a focus on excellence and the provision of the best possible student learning experience within the global context necessary for future success
providing opportunities for those individuals with the potential to succeed in higher education, and who wish to stay in the Tees Valley, to use access to higher education to enhance their contribution to the health, well-being and social, economic and cultural future of the area
maintaining, and celebrating our position as a people led organisation that recruits, values and invests in high quality staff.
At Teesside we seek to optimise and enhance the experience of staff, students, partners and external clients by:
encouraging and embracing diversity, equality of access, esteem and opportunity and actively opposing and eradicating prejudice
empowering individuals to develop themselves and enhance their contribution to the future aims and strategic direction of the University
communicating openly and effectively in all directions
being open, transparent, honest and reflective
valuing team-working and the expertise and the contribution of individuals
celebrating and promoting individual contributions and the achievements and wider successes of the University
working proactively and flexibly with all stakeholders and the wider community
working in partnership to welcome, own and adapt to change
fostering creativity, innovation and enterprise
being committed to sustainability and the protection of our environment
