Mission Statement

By 2030, UL will be the national leader for the embedding of equality & inclusion in our structures, opportunities and community.
By taking a whole-institutional approach to inclusion in UL, this mission aims to bring together the entire university community to achieve the goal of becoming a fully accessible, inclusive and diverse institution. To do so, UL will provide an inclusive educational experience through international best practice and attract, retain and develop an excellent and diverse cohort of students, faculty and staff.

Sustainable Development Goals

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of 17 global goals adopted by the United Nations in 2015 to promote sustainable development and address social, economic, and environmental challenges. Each mission and associated project within the Mission Lab portfolio is directly linked to one or more SDGs, ensuring all efforts are in service of true impact.
