Our motto

The University motto is: generatim discite cultus.

The motto comes from The Georgics by Virgil, Book II, line 35, in a section where Virgil is talking about understanding the nature of an organism in order to ensure it thrives.

As translated by H.R. Fairclough for Loeb Classical Library (first published in 1916 by Harvard University Press): Learn the culture proper to each after its kind.

As translated by Kimberly Johnson for Penguin Classics (published in 2009): Learn husbandry specific to each species.

In her 50th Anniversary speech, the President and Vice-Chancellor Professor Dame Glynis Breakwell commented that the motto instructs us to “achieve an understanding of our world and strive to use our knowledge to ensure a sustainable future”.
