Purpose and Values

USS is a unique organisation due to the role it plays in the Higher Education (HE) sector, the relationship it has with its members and beneficiaries and the internal structure which is split between membership-focus and investment (USS & USSIM).

The newly-articulated purpose firmly states the importance of members and puts them ‘front and centre’ of what the organisation is about:
