Description

What are core values and what use are they? How can the central government core values translate to academia? Why do the ‘statutory’, political values end up in conflict with academic values based on the specific culture of universities? What methods and what examples exist for active and effective core values work at a university? And how do you implement core values so that they are present and meaningful within the organisation?
This report from the “Core values project at Lund University” attempts to answer these questions, problematize various values and provide support for core values work at a ‘typical’ university. The book contains the history of core values, their legal and cultural background in general and at Lund University in particular. It provides examples of methods which can be applied in core values work, such as a deeper understanding of discrimination and master suppression techniques, norm criticism and inclusive teaching. It concludes with an inventory of relevant projects at Lund University.
