Southern Regional College

Reducing sectarianism and social exclusion through the College curriculum and community outreach


In an environment affected by a legacy of sectarianism and present challenges the College has taken an effective lead in changing attitudes and behaviours — both inside and beyond the institution — through its Good Relations Programme. A community relations course, compulsory for all first year students, is embedding values of tolerance and inclusiveness and shows a measurable improvement in the academic results of students. The College also reaches out to disadvantaged communities with relevant and accessible educational programmes.
