Oxford Centre for the Study of Philanthropy

This week marked the inaugural seminar and launch of the Oxford Centre for the Study of Philanthropy at Green Templeton College, University of Oxford with a talk by Somerville College historian, Dr Frank Prochaska on British Philanthropy: Past and Present. The impact of philanthropy on public life and welfare – for good and ill – makes the study of philanthropy important and timely. I’m excited about working with academic colleagues and centres at Oxford and beyond to deepen understanding and critical thinking about this mercurial phenomenon.
