Public Benefit Statement 2015/16

Our Mission is to deliver world class research and teaching, educating our students to become future leaders and innovators, and benefiting the wider population through our research, enterprise and influence. Our Mission derives from our constitutional
charitable Objects to “advance learning and knowledge by teaching and research, particularly in science and technology, and in close association with industry and commerce”. These Objects are set out in our Royal Charter of 1966. Members of the  University Council, as trustees, have had due regard to the guidance on public benefit published by the Charity Commission in
exercising their trustees’ powers or duties. The induction programme for new members of Council includes coverage of the Commission’s guidance. The full Council membership receives periodic briefings on regulatory matters, including the Charity Commission’s guidance. Our commitment to delivering public benefit is at the core of our Mission. Our Mission was reaffirmed by members of Council when our new University Strategy 2016- 2021 was approved in July 2016. In furtherance of our Mission, our key objective continues to be to deliver excellence in our two primary charitable purposes, research and education (University Strategy 2013-2016 approved by our trustees in June 2013).
