De HU is een transparante organisatie door open communicatie met elkaar en onze omgeving. De besturingsfilosofie van de HU is gebaseerd op het werken in teams. Uitgangspunt in de samenwerking is dat we onze kennis delen en doen wat we beloven, in- én extern. Dat betekent dat we elkaars verschillende competenties en expertises consistent erkennen, gebruiken, delen en versterken. Zodat we er met elkaar uit halen wat er in zit. Hogeschool Utrecht is een kennisorganisatie. Met hoogwaardig onderwijs en onderzoek werken we aan innovatie en professionalisering van de beroepspraktijk en aan de persoonlijke ontwikkeling van talent. Daarmee dragen we bij aan de sociale, culturele en economische ontwikkeling van een open, rechtvaardige en duurzame samenleving. De HU leidt gemotiveerde studenten op van 17 tot 67 jaar. Het gaat dus niet alleen om instromers op de arbeidsmarkt, maar ook om mensen die al werken en hun kennis en vaardigheden willen actualiseren, verbreden of verdiepen. De maatschappij heeft immers behoefte aan professionals die zich blijven(d) scholen. We hebben een breed opleidingsaanbod dat vrijwel alle (beroeps)sectoren bestrijkt en zijn één van de grootste aanbieders van post-initieel onderwijs en masterstudies.
Met 3500 medewerkers vormen we een grote organisatie waarin de menselijke maat centraal blijft staan. De HU heeft vestigingen in de steden Utrecht en Amersfoort. Daarnaast worden de activiteiten van het Seminarium voor Orthopedagogiek regionaal georganiseerd vanuit de regiokantoren.
