Small Start-up Culture

Olin is an extraordinary learning community of students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents, corporate partners, board leaders, educational partners, donors and others who are bound by a vibrant culture of innovation and a vision to change engineering education to make it a fun, engaging, meaningful and a powerful experience. We believe strongly in advancing engineering as a bridge to equity, opportunity and progress for humanity on a global scale.

Olin graduated its sixteenth class in 2021 and retains a small start-up culture where everyone is highly vested in finding new and better ways to educate and become educated. Students helped to found Olin and remain active partners with faculty, staff and our outside supporters. We practice what we preach, and hold true to our Core Personal Values, which are first and foremost about developing a sense of trust and commitment to helping each other and the world.
