University of Lincoln Brayford Pool Campus The University of Lincoln, UK, has received the prestigious Race Equality Charter Bronze Award for its efforts to tackle racial inequality.  

The University of Lincoln is now one of only 21 UK universities to hold the Bronze Award status from Advance HE, which recognises the work the University is doing to identify and reflect on institutional and cultural barriers facing Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic staff and students.

Staff and students from across the University played a key role in Lincoln gaining the recognition, directing the approach and gathering information for the submission. The University's Eleanor Glanville Centre - a dedicated department for diversity and inclusion led by Professor Belinda Colston - was instrumental in driving the Race Equality Charter forward at Lincoln and producing the University˙s submission and action plan.

Professor Mary Stuart CBE, Vice Chancellor of the University of Lincoln, said: ´I am delighted that we have achieved this important award as we work our way towards an inclusive university. The Race Equality Charter Bronze Award is great recognition of this, however the work has only begun. This is an important milestone for the University we must use as a platform to continue to push forward our work to become an anti-racist university and an institution where we have equity of outcomes for both staff and students. I would like to thank everyone who contributed to the Charter and particularly to our colleagues from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds who gave their time and shared their personal experience to help us move forward.ˇ
