Social Impact Pledge logo

South Lanarkshire College pledges to:

Challenge ourselves to increase the positive impact we make on our local community and make better use of our assets – our buildings/grounds and our people.

In the next six months we will do at least three things that we don’t do at the moment to improve our social impact.

To achieve the LGBT Charter of Rights. Through a range of planned actions, staff training, activities and events, support and promote LGBT equality and diversity. This will positively impact our students, staff, partners and the local and wider community. The College seeks to be a community where everyone is treated with respect, fairness and understanding.                                                                                                           

Geographical location of impact

  • East Kilbride, South Lanarkshire but as we have staff and students who travel extensively across Scotland this will also have a far reaching impact across the wider community.

2nd Commitment

To promote and encourage community use of the College Annexe campus. This would enable community-led organisations to use our building to hold meetings and community activities on a twilight basis. Thus, providing excellent facilities, free of charge to our local communities. South Lanarkshire College is committed to building stronger links with the communities we serve.
