Transforming lives and communities starts with working in partnership

Lincoln is known for its strong focus on, and pioneering approach to collaboration: from working with students to co-create learning environments and student experiences, to working cooperatively with wider communities in our research. Partnership working with other organisations, commerce, and industry, both nationally and internationally, will be key to our future success in growing the economic, social, and cultural life of the city, county, and wider region.

We will create a purposeful community that is committed to making a positive difference.
