Academic Partnerships

Co-Creating Transformational Education


"Olin College is intended to be different- not for the mere sake of being different - but to be an important and constant contributor to the advancement of engineering education in America and throughout the world and, through its graduates, to do good for humankind."

                                    --Olin College Founding Precepts


Olin College of Engineering is more than just a laboratory for innovation in engineering education on our own campus. We are dedicated to co-creating transformational educational experiences with academic partners around the world. We support and guide leaders in education, business, and government seeking to change educational institutions and systems to spur the innovation necessary to take on society's big challenges.

See How We Innovate

At Olin, we believe that a culture of experimentation requires creativity in all its participants; an openness to new ideas; a tolerance for the inevitable failures that characterize the path to meaningful change; the natural inclination to seek community engagement balanced with a sense of purpose; and the ability to make principled decisions in leading an efficient and effective organization.
