WikiProject University of Oxford

Project Icon

WikiProject University of Oxford is a WikiProject which aims to improve Wikipedia's coverage of the University of Oxford.

As of March 2007, it seems that Oxford is not especially well covered on Wikipedia by comparison with some other institutions that are by no means any more notable. This project aims to coordinate efforts to remedy that! That said, members should always ensure that articles are written from a neutral point of view — Oxford is sufficiently prestigious that there should be no need to resort to academic "boosterism".

Please help this project evolve by providing your own modifications, comments and suggestions. (Leave a message).
