Public statement on Bishop George Bell

The University has an Anglican foundation, this means that the Diocese of Chichester has been represented on the University’s Board of Governors. Bishop Bell served both as a member and Chair of the Board of Governors.

The University has been host to the George Bell Institute since 2010. The George Bell Institute and the academic work of its human rights scholars were supported by funds from the George Bell Trust. In May 2015, the Trust Board took the decision that the Trust was not financially viable and a process was put in train to wind up the Trust. This process came to an end in January 2016 and as result the University has closed the Institute and withdrawn the associated Fellowships.
