How to be part of LSE

Through our strategy, LSE 2030, we want to develop our School to help everyone thrive – but what does ‘thriving’ mean and how are we shaping our approach?

As part of our strategy, developing LSE for everyone is about investing in our community and enhancing our services and infrastructure - so that we enable every member of our community to excel, and continue to attract the best and brightest.

To make sure we have a holistic approach, this work is framed around four themes to help us shape our School and its community become:

  • Empowered
  • Healthy
  • Sustainable
  • Inclusive

Read on to find out more about how we’re bringing each theme to life.



Empowering our community is about providing the tools, services and training to help everyone at our School thrive in their work and studies.

How are we empowering our community?

  • Investing in our technology infrastructure by updating our systems and building for the future
  • Developing lifelong learning with our learning and development programme, apprenticeships mentoring and coaching
  • Supporting a better work life balance with Future Ways of Working.

Creating a truly inclusive LSE is the first guiding principle of our LSE 2030 strategy, and we are proud to promote equitable treatment and champion diversity at our School.

How are we creating an inclusive LSE?

  • As part of building a more inclusive community, our Race Equity Framework brings together meaningful action now with our School’s longer-term strategic vision
  • Inclusivity starts with recruitment, where we have introduced anonymised applications and our fair recruitment adviser initiative - both of which work to remove bias from application through to interview and appointment
  • Our staff networks provide safe spaces for staff from all backgrounds and help improve inclusivity by giving people a voice at an individual and collective level.

Developing a sustainable LSE means building a future for the social sciences and people across our community. Sustainability is a key priority which everyone can get involved with, on and off campus.

How are we creating a Sustainable LSE?

  • Embedding sustainability across our teaching and learning experiences
  • Reaching net-zero carbon and reducing our direct environmental impacts
  • Making sustainability a key part of our investment decisions
