Core Values

We encourage an environment of dialogue and discovery that fosters integrity, excellence, inclusiveness, respect, collaboration, and innovation.  MUT’s core values reflect how we have pursued our plan as well as how we will fulfill our mission and realise our vision. Each value reflects rich, shared meaning on how we go about shaping and owning the future:

  1. ACCOUNTABILITY: We act with professionalism and uphold the highest ethical standards. We are committed to transparency and accountability. Our decisions ensure responsible stewardship of the University’s resources, reputation, and values. We lead by example in all areas including our approaches to sustainability.
  2. INTEGRITY: We adhere to a standard of core values and ensure that our actions meet expectations and are carried out in a fair and ethical fashion.
  3. RESPECT: We respect our colleagues and work together for shared success. We treat others with civility and openness, recognising the dignity inherent in each individual.
  4. EXCELLENCE: We are committed to delivering consistently high-quality service, teaching, and research through superior performance. We strive for excellence, seeking to apply the highest standards to benefit our communities.  These values define what MUT stands for and what we bring to work. We undertake to uphold them regardless of whether or not they are rewarded and even if at some point they become a competitive disadvantage.
