Course Enquiries - Eleanor Glanville Centre
The Eleanor Glanville Centre is the University of Lincoln's department for diversity and inclusion. Led by Professor Belinda Colston, the Centre specialises in the development and evaluation of EDI strategies and interventions, and their impact across the sector. We carry out interdisciplinary research that critiques and challenges social exclusion and inequality in contemporary society, exploring issues of, and connections between, gender, race, ethnicity, sexuality, class and disability. Outcomes of our research inform and influence evidence-based policy and shape best-practice both within the UK and internationally.School Staff List Make an Enquiry Call Us
Understanding the attitudes and behaviours that underpin our culture and define the environments within which we live and work, can help us reduce the inequalities that are so prevalent in societies and communities across the world.
At the Eleanor Glanville Centre, our research critically addresses issues of equality, diversity, and inclusion and advances new ideas unconstrained by disciplinary boundaries. By joining our research teams, students can engage in cutting-edge research with real-life impact, and contribute to our ambition to change culture and achieve inclusive excellence.
The Eleanor Glanville Centre offers the opportunity to undertake research alongside academics whose research has been internationally recognised. Researchers in the Centre include Professor Belinda Colston, whose expertise lies in the development and evaluation of innovative strategies and mechanisms for building inclusive research environments, and their wider impact across the sector, and Professor of Sociology and Social Policy, Abigail Powell, who is an expert in the gender division of labour (in the home and workplace), with a particular focus on gender in male-dominated occupations; youth studies; financial wellbeing and complex evaluation and impact measurement.
Students can benefit from a supportive academic community, where ideas and experiences are shared with the aim of advancing knowledge, and informing strategy, policy and practice across the sector and the wider field.
To support your experience within the postgraduate research community, new students are encouraged to enrol in October, February, or May.

At Lincoln, Covid-19 has encouraged us to review our practices and, as a result, to take the opportunity to find new ways to enhance the student experience. We have made changes to our teaching and learning approach and to our campus, to ensure that students and staff can enjoy a safe and positive learning experience. We will continue to follow Government guidance and work closely with the local Public Health experts as the situation progresses, and adapt our teaching and learning accordingly to keep our campus as safe as possible.
