“Since 1555, St John’s has striven to provide excellence in education and research. In this 40th anniversary of admitting women, let us take the opportunity of stepping back and reflecting on how we can ensure that a commitment to equality and diversity is at the core of our mission.” – Professor Maggie Snowling CBE President, St John's College
