Everywhere you look on Oxford’s campus, there is tangible proof of the impact each annual gift to the Oxford College Fund for Excellence makes. We enjoy state-of-the-art facilities, including our new library and science building, that support the standards of our curriculum while attracting new students to Oxford. As Oxford’s new dean, I am delighted to see these structures supporting a tremendously talented faculty and staff in our transformative work.
We now have more work to do and opportunities to seize as we focus on reaching other goals of our strategic planning. Chief among these is growing the size and number of our scholarships in order to make Oxford accessible to students regardless of their family income level. Applications to Oxford are at historic highs, and the number of impressive applicants who need financial aid has also grown.
Supporting and enriching Oxford’s curriculum are also major goals. We want to expand our travel program, grow our already acclaimed leadership program, and increase the opportunities for internships that prepare students for life beyond Oxford and Emory. We know that all of these priorities make additional demands on our financial resources, but our students are at the heart of each goal. Oxford’s commitment to its students and the emphasis on highly effective, personal approaches to education remain the same.
Your financial support will help ensure that these longstanding values continue to be manifested and that Oxford reaches an even greater level of excellence. Please consider making your annual gift today.
