Newbold Diversity Centre

Celebrating differences in a safe space

What is the Diversity Centre?

The Diversity Centre at Newbold College of Higher Education creates and hosts lectures and conferences which explore ideas about human differences in an open, inclusive environment.

It is dedicated to creating a forum where majority and minority groups can discuss, reconcile and celebrate their differences in a safe space.

It aims not to emphasise differences at the expense of commonality, but emphasises what we have in common and balances that with what makes us unique.

How you can attend:

The Centre usually hosts three monthly lectures each semester including the annual Beach Lecture (funded by the Beach endowment) every October.

The lectures are usually on a Tuesday night at 19:30pm in the Assembly Hall in Salisbury Hall.
