Homerton College, University of Cambridge Cambridge, UK
Homerton College has a rich history. It was originally established in Homerton, London in 1768, as a dissenting academy. It later moved to Cambridge, and it received its Royal Charter in 2010, making it Cambridge’s newest and largest College. The past 30 years have seen remarkable change as Homerton has rapidly developed into a forward-looking Cambridge College, fit for the twenty-first century, leading the way in relation to access and widening participation, education, innovation, diversity and inclusion, and encouraging a commitment to public service. With over 750 student residents on site, 66 Fellows and approximately 150 support staff, the College consistently exceeds benchmarks and targets for the admission of socio-economically disadvantaged students and students from ethnic minorities. 75% of UK undergraduates admitted in 2021 were from state schools with 19% from POLAR 1 and 2 postcodes. The College has a new Principal, Lord Simon Woolley, who took up the post in 2021....
