We Are York

Posted on 28 September 2017

Our community is built on respect, fairness and compassion.

Welcome to all new and returning students. As part of this year’s safety talks, Freshers were shown a video introducing them to their new University of York community.

The video explains our community’s values of respect, fairness and compassion. It talks about diversity and inclusion. And it outlines our shared expectations of behaviour; how we treat one another and how we want to be treated.

All our students and staff should be able to live, learn, work and research in a peaceful and supportive environment.

Each member of the community has a responsibility to uphold these values and to challenge inappropriate behaviour.

We encourage all students to view the video on the student homepage or the University’s YouTube channel.
