digitally literate, knowledgeable, enterprising global
The University aims to develop a lifelong relationship with its
graduates responding to their lifelong learning and professional
development needs to the benefit of the Graduates themselves, as
well as their employers and the community at large.
Students/Graduates and Staff are encouraged to become positive
contributors to the communities in which they belong and an ethos
of active volunteering is both encouraged and is a growing facet of
the University learning experience.
While the resources in terms of tuition fees and other sources
of income listed in our accounts are vital to the delivery of our
mission, the University is ever mindful that its mission of social
inclusion must be based on providing an equality of opportunity for
all those with a motivation and academic ability to make best use
of the life enhancing opportunities the University offers
irrespective of the social, ethnic, cultural or economic background
Widening Participation is also central to the delivery of the
mission, as are our schemes to provide bursary support towards the
cost of studying at Wolverhampton for those of limited means as
well as the emergency and hardship funds that are disbursed to
address social inclusivity and hopefully assist students to achieve
their study aspirations and vocational outcomes.
In terms of social change, the University conducts its research
objectives in selected areas in a user-led collaborative way aimed
at maximising the societal impact of our research outcomes.
We aim to contribute to economic development and wealth
generation in the development and commercialisation of innovative
products, processes and services, as well as making our advice and
expertise readily accessible to the [business] community and the
development of firm and long-lasting relationships.
The University plays a leading role in the economic prosperity
of the region by encouraging the creation of graduate start-up
businesses in the University’s incubator facilities and elsewhere
as well as assistance given to enhance business competitiveness in
the rapidly changing global economy.
