The University of Lincoln has recently established a new School of Geography within the College of Science, with the first cohort of Undergraduate students joining us in September 2017. The new School is establishing interdisciplinary programmes in Physical and Human Geography, complementary to, and extending the University's existing portfolio. This will enhance the University's existing research which has distinctive "local to global" character.

The University has also recently established the Lincoln Institute for Agri-food Technology and the Lincoln Institute for Health, and we are keen to ensure that at least part of the new School's activity supports a research theme concerning the sustainable intensification of global food supply and associated environmental health issues. The School will be involved in joint delivery of interdisciplinary teaching and research programmes, and will form part of the broader development of complementary programmes and research activity, which is attracting external funding.

The School of Geography will focus on the 'Inhabited Earth' with particular emphasis on the safety and health aspects of global environments. With the world's population divided between urban centres and rural populations, we will also include social issues that affect both, such as crime and deprivation, as well as pollution and natural hazards notably floods and droughts.

There are close links with the new interdisciplinary Lincoln Centre for Water and Planetary Health as it is our intention that our students become technically and conceptually equipped by linking their learning to this research environment. Their lives and capabilities will be enhanced by close relationships with academics who are confronting 21st century practical environmental challenges.

The foundational Head of School is Professor Mark Macklin whose expertise lies in river systems, global environmental change and in catchment hazard and pollution issues.
