Our values

We believe that an inclusive and inspiring environment that encourages everyone to collaborate is essential to our daily work. Within the EAIE community of volunteers, members and staff, we are all passionate about what we do and committed to doing it the best we can. Our four values bind that commitment and passion and help guide the delivery of our strategy now and in the future. They also act as a moral compass and set the tone for our responsibilities and accountabilities both as the EAIE and as individuals.



We are collaborative by nature and are committed to contributing to the global community in which we live and work.

  • We foster a culture of openness by listening and learning from one another.
  • We value working together to achieve clear and shared goals.
  • We create opportunities for co-operation to build and maintain a community based on mutual respect.



We aim to be inspiring by being purpose-driven, enthusiastic and open to new opportunities.

  • We encourage open and informative forums that broaden people’s minds and help them to learn and develop.
  • We facilitate the sharing of expertise through an exchange of stimulating ideas.
  • We work to spark innovation in the higher education community and make a positive difference wherever and whenever we can.

  • We are communicative and flexible and want everyone to feel that their views are heard and respected.
