Policy and Objectives

An independently funded educational institution, Gresham College exists to continue the free public lectures which have been given for over 400 years, and to:

reinterpret the 'new learning' of Sir Thomas Gresham's day in contemporary terms;

engage in study, teaching and research, particularly in those disciplines represented by the Gresham Professors;

foster academic consideration of contemporary problems;

challenge those who live and work in the City of London to engage in intellectual debate on those subjects in which the City has a proper concern, and to provide a window on the City for learned societies, both national and international.
