BISHOP GROSSETESTE UNIVERSITY TO APPLY FOR NAME CHANG

Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU) has announced a proposal to change the institution’s name to Lincoln Bishop University.

According to the University, the proposed name change aligns with BGU’s strategic plan to better represent its location in the historic city of Lincoln and emphasises the institution’s dedication to serving its communities.

Throughout the consultation process, BGU engaged with over 600 stakeholders, including staff, current students, prospective students, alumni, and representatives from local schools and colleges.

Interim Vice-Chancellor Professor Karen Stanton said: “As an institution with a rich history of evolution and adaptation, Bishop Grosseteste University has undergone multiple name changes over the years.

“The proposed transformation to Lincoln Bishop University marks yet another significant chapter in our journey of growth and development, ensuring that our institution remains responsive to the evolving needs of our community and the ever-changing landscape of Higher Education.

“‘Lincoln Bishop University’ underscores our ongoing commitment to delivering a transformative educational experience while honouring our heritage and ties to Lincoln.

“During this process, I have enjoyed productive and positive conversations with the Principal of Lincoln College and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Lincoln. I am assured that both institutions are keen to work in collaboration and continue to enhance the provision of Higher Education in Lincoln.

“We’re grateful for the input and feedback from our stakeholders, who played a crucial role in informing our decision to propose the name change.”
