Foreword from the Vice-Chancellor and Chief Executive

London Met’s first People Strategy outlines our commitment to fostering a thriving and supportive community that prioritises ambition, pride, wellbeing, and inclusion. It aligns with our goal of making a significant contribution to our city while continuously improving our services for the benefit our students.

We value our diverse and talented staff community. Creating an environment where everyone feels valued, supported, and empowered is our shared responsibility. This People Strategy outlines our commitment to realising this vision.

As an ambitious university, we are dedicated to inspiring our students and staff to dream big and achieve their goals. Through high standards, growth opportunities, collaboration, innovative teaching, and strong partnerships, we aim to foster a culture of excellence. Together, we will drive trust, ambition and pride throughout the University.

Inclusivity is fundamental to our values and central to our mission of providing a transformative education. We embrace and celebrate diversity, ensuring that everyone feels welcomed, respected, and supported. By promoting wellbeing and inclusion, we create an environment where individuals can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.

We are focused on removing barriers, addressing inequalities, and fostering a sense of belonging for everyone in our community.

London Metropolitan University takes pride in its role as a contributor to our city’s social, cultural, environmental, and economic development. We recognise our responsibility to make a positive impact and actively engage with our local and global communities. Our dedication to continuous improvement drives us to enhance the quality of our services and the educational experience we offer. This People Strategy is an essential part of our journey.

I invite every member of our University community to embrace the principles and objectives outlined in this People Strategy. By working together, supporting one another, and nurturing an environment that values and respects every individual, we will make an exceptional University even better.
