Categories: Education, Race Issues

Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine is an independent constituent part of the University of London.

On 8 July 1907, King Edward VII granted a Royal Charter establishing the Imperial College of Science and Technology. This incorporated the Royal School of Mines and the Royal College of Science. It also made provisions for the City and Guilds College to join once conditions regarding its governance were met, as well as for Imperial to become a college of the University of London. The college joined the University of London on 22 July 1908, with the City and Guilds College joining in 1910

Other medical schools have since also merged with the College.

2021: The Guardian: "Imperial College London urged to remove statue and rename buildings. Report into historical links to British empire highlights scientists who advocated eugenics and racism."
