Green College is one of the constituent colleges of the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom. It is located in an architecturally appealing eighteenth century building: the Radcliffe Observatory.
Established in 1979, the college is one of the youngest of the university, and is named after its main benefactors: Dr Cecil H. Green and his wife Dr Ida Green. Dr Green is a founder of Texas Instruments.
Green College is dedicated to human welfare in contemporary society. This is interpreted as an academic focus on medicine. Related disciplines, such as education, the environment and social sciences, however, are also covered.
About 40% of the students study in the field of medicine. About 20% are engaged in medical research on a post-graduate level. Environmental change and educational studies are two other strongholds of the college.
