 Warden's welcome



Nuffield College is dedicated to the pursuit of the social sciences. We seek to provide outstanding facilities for students and academic staff to study and to conduct research, and to be a place that acts as a bridge between the academic and public worlds. We hope this website gives a flavour of our work.

    A Memorial Service for Professor Chelly Halsey will be held at St Mary the Virgin, University Church, on Saturday 16 May. Chelly was a member of Nuffield College for more than fifty years (1962-64 Faculty Fellow, 1964-1993 Professorial Fellow, 1993-2014 Emeritus Fellow). The memorial is for his family, friends and colleagues, and we hope that you will be able to join us to honour such a special member of the College. The service will start at 2.15pm at the University Church (High Street, Oxford) and will be followed by a reception at Nuffield College. Tea, coffee and cake will be served in the dining hall. We would be grateful if you could RSVP to by 1 May if you intend to join us for the service.
