Tim Hitchens
Message from the President

It is a great honour to have been elected President of Wolfson. The college is one of the most distinctive in Oxford: a graduate college, exceptionally international in both make-up and outlook; a college born in the 1960s, committed to egalitarianism; and a college which over the last ten years has made extraordinary strides towards an interdisciplinary approach to knowledge, based on the insight that great academics think and react across disciplines rather than in silos.
