Wilson College of Textiles Core Values

Compassion – Equity – Collaboration – Innovation – Sustainability

Sustainability is not only a priority in all that we do here at the Wilson College, it’s also one of the core values that informs each decision we make. If you are printing the Wilson College of Textiles’ Strategic Plan and Culture Charter, use this more sustainable option, which uses less ink.
