Oxford Principles

The Oxford principles—Belonging, Identity, Care, Presence, Learning, and Accountability—reflect who we want to be today and challenge us to continue to grow to our full potential as individuals and as a college.

This November, we celebrate Gratitude. Gratitude is a meaningful combination of the two Oxford Principles we have highlighted so far this semester—Belonging and Care. Belonging is about finding a place where you feel included, supported, and heard. Care allows us to express compassion for both ourselves and our community. We encourage you to reflect on all you are grateful for in your personal and academic lives—the people who support you; the values that guide you; the opportunity to learn and discover at this vibrant institution; and the strength to meet challenges that make us strong, resilient, and compassionate.
