Regent’s Park College is a small, dynamic community at the heart of the City and the University of Oxford, specialising in the Arts and Humanities and is the largest Permanent Private Hall in the University. Its distinctive institutional character is formed from its Baptist foundation, a commitment to excellence in education and research, its egalitarian ethos, ‘dissenting’ traditions, and the value placed on the relationship between academia and real-world debates. It admits undergraduate and postgraduate students and has an ongoing commitment to Baptist ministerial formation. Everyone admitted to read for a degree is matriculated into the University of Oxford and has full access to its rich resources. The College also has award-winning tutors, who are teaching members of multiple faculties and departments at the University. The Regent’s community is now more diverse than ever before, and its radical spirit continues to be embodied in generations of students and staff pushing the boundaries of representation and inclusion.
The College is poised at an exciting point in its evolution and is looking forward to the future with ambition. At this pivotal time, the College seeks a new Principal to deliver on its strategic potential. The Principal is the central figure in the College’s life and work. As a visible and engaging leader, the Principal will champion Regent’s interests, ensure collegial decision-making and develop ambitious strategic plans. The new Principal will have a transformational effect on the College as it prepares to secure its place and future over the next decade.
This demanding and rewarding role will require a wholehearted commitment to the College, its members, and its future. The College welcomes applicants with a distinguished record of achievement from any professional background who are a member of a Baptist church.
