Kellogg College, Oxford

Kellogg College is one of the largest and most international graduate constituent colleges of the University of Oxford in England. Kellogg College is a graduate college and admissions are not open to undergraduates. It focuses on the concept of higher, postgraduate and lifelong learning and also caters to part-time mature students. The student body now numbers 150 full-time students and 400 part-time students (Hilary term 2010).

Kellogg College, Oxford's 36th college, was founded with financial assistance from the Kellogg Foundation, and became a full college of the university in 1994, Will Keith Kellogg being recognised as its effective founder.

History

In 1878, Arthur Johnson was the first to deliver an Oxford Extension Lecture. This turned into a movement which still flourishes. The movement has culminated into the contemporary establishment and structure of Kellogg College.

The movement grew out of a drive to liberalise Oxford which gained momentum in the 1850s. As a consequence, the University slowly began to open itself to religious nonconformists and poorer men. Later this was extended to include women. It is this movement that forms the historical background of Kellogg College. The extension lectures proved very popular.

The movement is sometimes credited for taking Oxford to the masses. Lectures were given in town halls, public libraries and village school rooms across the country. The aim of the extension movement was twofold: social and political. It aimed at educating the larger community to achieve a better informed democracy. It was all about citizenship.

The city of Oxford was asked to fund extensions of the university. This proved unpopular and an alternative system was chosen: flying visits by extension lecturers.

Buildings

In May 2004, the College acquired a site for a new permanent home, located between Banbury Road and Bradmore Road, in the Norham Manor area of North Oxford, a ten minute walk from Wellington Square, where the college was originally co-located with the Department for Continuing Education at Oxford University. The plan is to develop the site over a number of years. The existing Victorian buildings have been renovated to provide residential accommodation, offices, and research space. The College offices moved to the Banbury Road site in April, 2006.
