    2.  To attract the most academically talented women for graduate study at Murray Edwards, and enable them to excel.

    3.  To give all students the tools and confidence to identify and achieve their individual aspirations, and consider how to support young alumnae.

    5.  To make the College much better known and understood.

    6.  To maintain the ethos of the College as inclusive, friendly and modern, and to make sure the environment and life of the College continues to be vibrant and innovative.
