Valuing life lived in community. Oxford's sense of close-knit, supportive community is quickly apparent to even casual visitors to campus. Among the 850 students and 150 faculty and staff, there is an understanding that one person's success is everyone's success and we are committed to seeing that everyone succeeds. We understand that we have much to learn from each other, and that our learning is enriched by the Oxford's diversity - cultural, racial, religious, geographic, and socioeconomic. Students who want to live in isolation will not find Oxford to be a good fit, but those who want to know those around them and to have a sense of belonging find it very gratifying to be part of the supportive Oxford community.
