A Message from our Principal & CEO, Aileen Mckechnie

“Here at South Lanarkshire College, we’re proud to put our students first. We are committed to achieving equality of opportunity for all our students in our learning, and teaching environments, and we are taking forward a wide range of actions to promote equality and diversity. We want to help all our learners achieve their ambitions.

“We provide our learners with the very best learning experience in an atmosphere of respect, support and wellbeing. We want all our learners to succeed in their studies, and we want to see them all progress in their chosen career.

“I am delighted then to endorse the landmark anti-racist declaration: racism exists on Scottish campuses and in our society. Call it what it is and reject it in all its forms. We stand united against racism. South Lanarkshire College is committed to calling it racism; challenging racist behaviour and changing racist structures.

“We look forward to working with the Tackling Racism on Campus project on this important agenda.”
