The school's strategic vision is to strengthen academic support with the Military to open more opportunities to our graduates and be part of Military long-term strategy in academic and professional development, and to develop educational consultancy activity in support of the recent expansion in the private sector that has seen Lincoln become a national centre for companies engaged in supporting military training.
