Equality and Diversity

Lincoln College was founded in 1427 and has a tradition of academic excellence which goes back nearly 600 years.

The College is committed to fostering an inclusive culture that promotes equality, values diversity, and maintains a working, learning, and social environment in which the rights and dignity of all its staff, Fellows, and students are respected.

We recognise that for the College to thrive, we must continue to provide a diverse, inclusive, fair, and open environment that allows everyone to grow and flourish.

The College always considers how it can promote equality and inclusivity, particularly in regards to the protected characteristics of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion, sex and sexual orientation.

In accordance with the Equality 2010 and the Public Sector Equality Duty 2011 the College aims to:

  • Eliminate discrimination, harassment, victimization and any other conduct which the Equality Act 2010 prohibits;
  • Advance equality of opportunity between persons who share a relevant protected characteristic and those who do not;
  • Foster good relations between people who share a relevant protected characteristic and people who do not.
