The Fellows of Mansfield College, Oxford, intend to elect a Principal to take up office on 1 September 2018 following the retirement of Baroness Helena Kennedy. Mansfield College leads the University in terms of access and outreach for undergraduate admissions, and we have a reputation for informality and openness. We are one of the smaller colleges of the University of Oxford. We combine our own unique and progressive culture with the best of traditional Oxford, offering a supportive environment in which all work together to achieve academic excellence and foster a vibrant community. We pride ourselves on the quality of our outreach activities, and believe that the highest standards of academic achievement are best reached by providing opportunities to the most talented and highly motivated students from all backgrounds.
