At OUP, we believe in the power of the written word and the scholarship that stands behind it. Everything we publish relates directly to our mission: to support Oxford University's objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education. As a publisher, we take pride in this mission, which allows us to enable, support, and facilitate research and scholarship. As a not-for-profit organization, we generate revenue in order to publish, and to support the University’s wider educational mission.
We share the University's uncompromising standards, defining qualities, and belief in the transformative power of education to inspire progress and realise human potential. Our employees strive to make a positive impact within the wider community, and OUP's Employee Volunteering Program supports volunteer work for charities and causes that have an educational remit.
