Lord Woolley elected as Honorary Fellow at Harris Manchester College, Oxford
The Principal, Lord Woolley, has been elected as an Honorary Fellow at Harris Manchester College, Oxford.
Homerton and Harris Manchester have a longstanding relationship as sister Colleges, and share many commonalities. Both were originally formed to serve the needs of religious dissenters and have a proud nonconformist history. Both were founded in the 18th century and moved to their current sites in their respective cities in the 1890s. And both share a proud reputation for friendliness, diversity, freedom from the constraints of tradition, and a commitment to equipping students to make a positive difference in the world.
Harris Manchester received its Royal Charter and became a full College of the University of Oxford in 1996, and this year will belatedly celebrate its 25th anniversary. The College's Principal, Professor Jane Shaw, is a valued Honorary Fellow at Homerton.
