Super College revels in its Diversity

City of Glasgow College was one of the big winners at this year’s Herald and GenAnalytics Diversity Awards.

The college won the Design for Diversity category for the inclusive design process of its twin site super campus project including accessible design and assistive technology to enable the broadest range of users.

The award was presented to Megan Cartwright, Student President at City of Glasgow College, who was delighted to accept it on behalf of the college. She said:

“Our City campus has amazed almost 15,000 visitors since opening in September last year. It has won six architectural awards and its open, accessible learning spaces and advanced technology are being enjoyed by both students and staff. This award endorses our college’s ongoing commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion in our buildings and in all aspects of the college.”

Douglas Morrison, STEM and Innovation Project Lead at City of Glasgow College, added:

“The hard work, creativity and determination of individuals engaged in Equality, Diversity and Inclusion is testament to the work that is happening across Scotland. The finalists and winners were all well-deserved and our congratulations go to all.”

The Diversity Awards are now in their second year and recognise the companies, organisations and individuals who put equality and diversity at the heart of their actions.

The awards were presented during a gala dinner at Glasgow’s Radisson Blu Hotel where over 300 people gathered to celebrate.
