Dear Colleagues, I imagine that many of us awoke on 24th June to be surprised that the country had voted us out of the EU. We cannot predict detailed outcomes, but we can anticipate changes in our national affairs and possibly in our professional and personal lives. My reason for writing is to say plainly that I believe we should, as a college, resist any undermining of our common purpose with students, scholars and scientists from the EU and, of course, with those from further afield.
Congratulations and good luck to Zoe Clark (3rd year Engineering) who is part of the Oxford University Women’s Powerlifting Team going to Minsk to compete in the World University Powerlifting Cup on 11 July.
