Olin College values

Engineering for impact: thriving for all.

At Olin, we are engineering for impact: we strive to create a community and contribute to a world in which all can thrive.

As we pursue our vision of Engineering for Everyone, we work intentionally to reinforce the values to which we aspire. We reflect on who we are now and who we want to be and strive to embody the ideals we embrace.
We commit to serving the Olin community and society at large by enacting our values of equity and justice, trust, learning and growth, sustainability, and collaboration for the benefit of others, especially those who are most in need.As a community, we:

  • Fight for equity and justice.
  • Offer our trust and earn the trust of others through our words and actions.
  • Continually strive to learn, to grow, and to share what we have learned.
  • Protect and sustain our natural, built, and financial resources so that they might equitably benefit future generations.
  • Collaborate; find meaning and joy in connection with others.
