Dear all,

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the History Dialogue so far. We are very grateful to the hundreds of Imperial staff, students and alumni who have already contributed thoughtful written submissions, participated in facilitated small group discussions, and shared their views with others in the community.

The final element of the dialogue process will be an online History Dialogue Forum on Wednesday 26 January, 12.30-13.45, open to all staff and students. The forum will be facilitated by the Consuls and provides a further opportunity for current students and staff to share their views with one another. Please do register to attend. When registering you can indicate if you wish to speak in the meeting or submit a short written comment.

To aid discussions, a summary of contributions to date [pdf] has been prepared with support from independent facilitators.

President’s Board will consider the contributions and ideas from the forum alongside the views already shared by email and in group discussions. The College’s leadership will decide on how to proceed and inform the community at the end of February. 

Best wishes,


Professor Alice Gast, President 

Professor Ian Walmsley, Provost
