About St John's College

Founded in 1909, St John’s College boasts a lively and diverse mix of students and is like no other Durham college.

Set in a series of beautiful listed buildings in Durham's historic heart, the College enjoys stunning views of the Norman Cathedral and River Wear.St John's is one of the smallest colleges, and is renowned for its welcoming and supportive atmosphere.

St John's has two distinctive yet engaged communities at its heart: a diverse community of undergraduates, postgraduates and academics studying for University degrees in all disciplines, and Cranmer Hall, a thriving Anglican theological college in which people are educated and formed for church leadership.

The College has a degree of independence within the University, both financially and in its governance. Our students study for University degrees alongside members of other colleges, but we have the freedom to do things a little differently.

Public Lectures at St John's

Over the past week we have had a packed programme of public lectures including:

 

Dr Barbara Sattler, our Fellow from the Institute of Advanced Studies who illustrated an outstanding lecture on time and speed in Greek philosophy with reference to our women’s rowing crew in a race against St Chad’s.

 

Alumnus Jonathan Cox, Deputy Director of Citizens UK who spoke about how his time as DSU Rep on the JCR Exec developed the leadership and organisational skills that he would deploy later in professional life.

 

Michael Wear, the founder of Public Square Strategies LLC, and a leading expert and strategist at the intersection of faith, politics and American public life, spoke about religion and politics in the US. He was one of the youngest White House staffers in modern American history: he served in the White House faith-based initiative during President Obama’s first term, where he helped manage The White House’s engagement on religious and values issues, including adoption and anti-human trafficking efforts.
