Each year a number of outstanding incoming freshmen are selected for the Scholars Program. The program is sponsored by the Pierce Institute, but as an academic program, it is overseen by the associate dean for academic affairs and selected faculty members.
The Oxford Scholars Program shares common goals with the Pierce Institute, including the promotion of intellectual and leadership capacities, the encouragement of civic engagement and social responsibility, and the development of ethical leadership skills and collaborative decision making.
The program encourages student scholars to continue their academic and personal development as well as make positive contributions to the Oxford College community. It includes activities such as dinners with faculty; lectures and discussions about significant literary, historical, or artistic topics; and other events of interest. The cultural component of the program exposes scholars to a wide range of events in the local area and in Atlanta, such as plays, concerts, and other activities.
