Living our Core Values

McMaster’s commitment to research excellence is informed by a set of core values from which we will not waver:

  • We insist on ethics, equity, and excellence in scholarship in all research programs.
  • We regard the work of educating students, and of extending the boundaries of knowledge through research, as inseparable and mutually reinforcing activities.
  • We conduct research that advances society, using the best practices and cutting-edge technologies available to us.
  • We support collaborative work and thinking across Faculties and disciplines as an essential driver of innovation.
  • We partner with hospitals, governments, institutions, and businesses locally, nationally, and globally to share resources and expertise, solve complex problems, spur economic growth, and create a more skilled workforce.
  • We share our knowledge widely to help shape policies and practices that will strengthen communities and improve lives in Canada and around the world.
