In this issue, we meet Naomi Ololuo (2022, Law) and Ardeel Hussain (2022, PPE), two of the first cohort of the Beacon Programme, Univ’s major initiative to drive participation and inclusion in education and research. We ask a few Leading Questions of Laurence Unger (2001, Modern Languages), Head of Public Markets at Legacy Trust Company in Houston, Texas. Professor Joe Moshenska, Beaverbrook and Bouverie Tutorial Fellow in English, finds inspiration within the College walls.
In part three of our series on Univ entrepreneurs, Avin Rabheru MBE (2001, PPE), Founder and CEO of Housekeep, Dr Nina Wilson (1998, Physiological Sciences), CEO and Founder of One Woman Health, Ben Grass (1990, History) and Tom Grass (1992, History), co-founders of Grass & Co, and Nathan Lucaussy (2017, Computer Science and Philosophy) and Andy Guariglia (2017, Medicine), co-founders of Angry Monk, explain how they got started and where they find inspiration.
Also, in this issue, Pireeni Sundaralingam (1986, Experimental Psychology), Univ’s inaugural Poet Laureate, discusses poetry as a key catalyst for helping us think better. Printmaker, poet, author, artist, theatre director, occasional musician, lecturer and cultural provocateur, John Fox MBE (1959, PPE and Education) reflects on his artistic journey. Current student, Tilly Binucci (2019, Classics) explains the process of creating illustrations for The Oxford Blue newspaper.
