We have been challenging traditions for more than 160 years. We make lives better by producing leaders of society and equipping our people with leadership qualities to serve our communities at every level. Since our inception, we have believed in education for all and leadership that makes lives better. The same values continue to inform our policy of inclusion and underpin our long-term strategy for growth. Our strategy is simple: to create a place where the best researchers and most promising students can achieve their full potential.

No matter what course you are studying, what faculty you work for, or how you are involved with the University, our strategy is relevant. The University's strategic plan is more than a high-level document for our governing bodies and senior management. It is the roadmap to achieving our shared vision. Our vision is unashamedly aspirational, aiming to position the University of Sydney as the best University in Australia and a leading institution globally. We get behind a range of activities to ensure everyone is accepted and has equal education and employment opportunities at our University.

Being inclusive is embedded in our culture, but we know it has no meaning unless we do as we say. That is why we run programs and initiatives that demonstrate how we live our values. We believe everyone should have the opportunity to enter higher education, for instance, so we visit primary and high schools across NSW to make sure students from underrepresented groups know why going to University is essential and what pathways are available to them.

We believe racism in any form is abhorrent and must be countered, so we have partnered with the Australian Human Rights Commission's campaign Racism. It Stops with Me. And we believe in the equal rights of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, and Queer (LGBTIQ) students and staff, so we have set up an ALLY network. An ally's role is to be aware of the challenges faced by LGBTIQ people and make a difference in whatever way they feel comfortable. This can include being a point of contact for students, participating in training, or standing against inequality or exclusion when they see it. We stand firm in our commitment to advancing gender equity, promoting women in leadership, and furthering women's education.
