A message from the Vice-Chancellor

Our twenty-two acre university campus has been a feature of uphill Lincoln for over 160 years. As its current stewards we are dedicated to preserving it - and the wider world - for generations to come, through a commitment to environmental sustainability. We also recognise the importance of fair and ethical practice, not only in relation to our learners, researchers, staff, alumni, and partners, but to those outside our immediate sphere of influence with the potential to be impacted by decisions we make and behaviours we model.

Our university strategy builds upon and celebrates a long and rich history. Inspired by our Anglican foundation, we continue to live the values of respect, integrity, courage, excellence, resilience and inclusion. By valuing all of our people, and through ethical and enduring partnership working, we take pride in delivering individualised and creative support and transformation to our learning and business communities.

Our working group on environmental sustainability and ethical practice, BG Green, has a co-ordinating role in ensuring related priorities are developed and improved upon, but collective responsibility, and the actions of all members of our University community, is key to the successful delivery of these.

Revd Canon Prof Peter Neil, Vice-Chancellor at Bishop Grosseteste University
