Our Senior Partner, Dr Ann Olivarius, was featured in the New York Times this weekend, discussing the recent announcement that the Rhodes Scholarship will be expanding to incorporate students from China.
The article, written by Beijing Bureau Chief David Barboza, said the following:
Ann Olivarius, a former Rhodes scholar and regular adviser to the Rhodes Trust, said the changes in the program were reflective of a changing world.
“The original idea was of its time: to keep Europe at peace,” she said. “We want to educate articulate people in all parts of the world, not just the white, Anglo-centric world.”
Dr Olivarius is a Rhodes Scholar and is Founder and Chair of the Rhodes Project, a research centre that investigates the lives of women Rhodes Scholars to further understanding of issues of gender and leadership. To find out more, visit the Rhodes Project's website.
