The LSE community is shaped by its diverse and talented students and staff, its location in a vibrant international city, and its loyalty to an institution whose mission has inspired path-breaking research and a prestigious reputation.
We nurture that community through a set of shared understandings that rely on and value contributions from across the School.
Being part of the LSE community means that together, we:
- Create an inclusive, accessible and safe environment to work and study.
We expect all LSE citizens to act collegially and with respect for one other to support learning, wellbeing, debate and dialogue, alongside the pursuit and dissemination of knowledge and ideas.
- Value our diverse and international membership and promote equality of respect and opportunity in accordance with LSE’s Ethics Code and UK law.
We work with each another to promote and respect health and wellbeing through a range of dedicated professional services, creating a supportive working environment that’s beneficial to all.
- Maximise LSE’s opportunities for positive global impacts through our teaching, research and community engagement.
As a community of staff and students, we value School citizens who contribute to this goal by taking up opportunities at LSE and within the wider community.
- Our community includes the LSE Students’ Union, an independent, student-led democratic organisation which focuses on improving the lives of LSE students by providing them with academic, social and welfare support.
Get involved in the community by taking part in opportunities offered by the LSESU, such as sports clubs, societies and services to enhance your skills.
