What we believe

Our values

St Anne’s is a modern, forward-looking, outward facing, intellectually ambitious college. Our academic objectives are the foundation of everything we do. We promote academic excellence through the research, publications and collaboration of our Fellows. We pass on that learning through support for our post-graduate students and the teaching of our undergraduates.

The College was founded to further intellectual emancipation, first defined in terms of gender, now pursued more widely. We seek to give opportunities, solely on the basis of academic potential, to students from a wide range of social and cultural backgrounds, including those who might otherwise be discouraged from coming to Oxford. Through their achievements, we seek to foster intellectual emancipation in our wider society.
