Welcome to the Glasgow Professional

...it is a philosophy, an ethos and an identity

The University’s strategy, World Changers Together, places people at the very heart of its ambition to be a world-class, world-changing University and focuses on transforming the way we work and the way we interact with each other, our students and our partners. The Glasgow Professional is a philosophy, an ethos, an identity which complements our strategy.

It is a philosophy: defining the principles of what it means to be a professional services member of staff; a philosophy which affirms the way professional services staff demonstrate our core values.

It is an ethos: defining the characteristics which make up our collective attitudes and aspirations. It defines our drive to work together to improve, to innovate, to challenge, to inspire.

It is an identity: shaping how we connect, collaborate and share. It is an identity which garners respect from our peers and which sees our successes and achievements being recognised, valued and celebrated.

Glasgow Professional Behavioural Framework

We are delighted to launch our new Glasgow Professional Behavioural Competency Framework, following extensive consultation and development.

The Framework defines ‘how’ we can all contribute to the success of the organisation and to our own successes as individuals. Values and behaviours are very much linked and the University of Glasgow’s values – Ambition and Excellence, Curiosity and Discovery, Integrity and Truth and An Inclusive Community - sit at the heart of everything we do.

Our behaviours are what people see and are an expression of what we value; they demonstrate the attitude and approach we, as Professional Services members of staff, should bring to our work and encompass how we do things, how we treat others and how we expect to be treated. Please do click the link below to access the full Framework.
