Inquiry into the History of Eugenics at UCL

In 2018, UCL's President & Provost Professor Michael Arthur commissioned an inquiry led by Professor Iyiola Solanke of the University of Leeds, to look at UCL’s historical role in, and the current status of, the teaching and study of the history of eugenics, as well as the current status of UCL’s benefit from any financial instruments linked to the study of eugenics.

The Inquiry's report and its recommendations were published on 28 February 2020 and accepted in principle by the Provost. UCL is now establishing a working group, which will consider how the university can respond to the recommendations.
