Virtue is about the difficult and the good'
Character is not cut in marble – it is not something solid and unalterable. It is something living and changing.'
Intelligence plus character—that is the goal of true education'
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Education has for its object the formation of character.'
True humility...is the low but deep and firm foundation of all virtues.'
Each year, Oxford and other world-class universities produce leaders and thinkers who go on to have significant influence and impact around the world, but these institutions devote far less attention to discerning whether they are developing wise thinkers and good leaders. The Oxford Character Project seeks to address this deficit by joining academic research into character formation with a unique leadership initiative. Our aim is to help talented postgraduate students develop key virtues of character which will prepare them to be the wise thinkers and good leaders the world so desperately needs.Learn more about usLearn more about us
