Service at King's 

Service is the term we adopted at King’s in our Strategic Vision 2029 to describe our commitment to society both through and beyond the traditional roles of education and research.

The ethos of King’s is to try to make a better world, putting the needs of others first beyond what might be expected of a university. 

This means helping to shape and transform local communities and societies around the world through social reform; embedding service to society within the educational experience; delivering research focused on meeting societal need; supporting  volunteering amongst our students, staff and alumni; and helping to protect the environment around us – all leading to positive change now and in the future.

Service at King’s embodies our commitment to societal impact, at home in London, across the UK and internationally.
