We Are One Community

We Are One Community

The University of Lincoln is a vibrant community of scholars. Each of us bringing new knowledge, skills, and approaches to our university life. We welcome thousands of new members to our community each year and we benefit from sharing views and ideas from all around the globe. We actively seek to create One Community where, whoever you are, wherever you come from, you are part of our University and you can be safe enough to be challenged and supported to grow and develop. Wherever you are from, Lincoln is your home – a base for discovery, learning, and exploring your world and your future.

We create opportunities for all members of our community to get involved and contribute to their university. We value new ideas and we adapt and develop as the community grows and changes. As One Community, we are comprised of individuals with a range of different experiences, identities, and cultures. We thrive as a community because of our diversity and it is through exploring novel and different ideas together that we can understand our world better.

At Lincoln we celebrate the diversity of all our staff and our students; and together we are stronger.

To all staff, students and alumni:

Lincoln Students’ Union is an independent organisation and communicates with its own members.

The University of Lincoln is not holding a referendum. We are aware that Lincoln Students’ Union is holding a referendum ‘to lobby the University of Lincoln to stand with the Black Lives Matter movement by providing more educational materials, engaging support and demonstrate positive activism’.

We support their right to do so but would like to say for the sake of all of our students, staff and alumni that the University of Lincoln is, and always has been, fully committed to our black students, and the global Black Lives Matter movement has encouraged us to redouble our efforts to stamp out racism.

This is not our referendum and regardless of the outcome the University of Lincoln will take action. As a University we are determined to address the challenges that we, and all universities, face to tackle discrimination, inequality and injustices facing black and minority students.

Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion

At the University of Lincoln we are One Community, with staff and students working together to create an environment in which people flourish based on their abilities, not their backgrounds.

The Respect Charter

At the University of Lincoln we believe that everyone is entitled to respect. Our success is dependent upon the positive contribution made by each and every member of the University’s community.

Our Respect Charter outlines the five core values that lie at the heart of our community:

  1. Recognise that we will not always share the same points of view.

  2. Treat people fairly, with courtesy and respect.

  3. Acknowledge that our personal behaviour has an impact on others.

  4. Own and try to learn positively from our mistakes.

  5. Be mutually supportive, and improve through our ability to work and learn together.
