College Statement on University Inquiry

A statement from the College in response to the University's Legacies of Enslavement Inquiry

The College welcomes the publication today of the University’s Legacies of Enslavement inquiry. We fully support the inquiry's recommendations and the University’s commitment to implement them, as well as its recognition that this is only the start of an ongoing dialogue. At King’s we are aware that the College has historically benefitted from endowments and gifts that can be traced back to financial gains made through the slave trade, and we are committed to understanding the specific nature and scope of these links. To this end, we are conducting our own scholarly research project into these historic connections and expect to publish our findings in the coming year.
