Our values

Building on our founders’ aims and charitable objects, our members have identified five key values of our organisation.

We wish the DEI to be:

  • A tranquil space in the heart of Exeter
  • A space where the past and present are linked through intellectual thought
  • A place where learning is revered
  • An Institution with a valued role in the contemporary educational landscape
  • A organisation which is open to new members of all ages
