At the University of Lincoln we are One Community and strive to be kind, patient, and supportive of each other. Our One Community Values define our One Community ethos and are a framework to ensure that respectful and inclusive behaviours should be at the heart of all we do – for each other, our partners, and our customers (internally and externally) both in our thoughts and our actions.



One Community Values


EQUALITY

We respect and value all members of our community and actively reject discrimination, seeking to promote equality for all. We value diversity and believe that while we are all different, each of us deserves equality of opportunity and the right to transparency in how we are treated

UNDERSTANDING

We are all individuals, together as one community. As part of this, we recognise we have different opinions, outlooks, and philosophies. We try to understand other points of view, even if we disagree with them

LISTENING

We give others our attention and respect and allow people the space to contribute to conversations. We listen to the quiet voices as well as the loud ones and speak up with them when we need to

KINDNESS

We are kind to other people in the words we choose and the actions we take, especially when nobody else is looking or we will not benefit personally

ACCEPTANCE

We accept people for who they are, and respect each person’s background, identity, beliefs, and differences. We appreciate the diverse range of experiences and perspectives in our community which strengthens it
