This chapter examines the impact of World War I on the University of Oxford. There were positive and negative effects of the war. War severed the university's ties with German scholars and undermined the real value of the endowments of Oxford colleges. However, it also drew the University, the civil service, and industry more closely together, which led to the establishment of the University Grants Committee and the Committee of Vice-Chancellors and Principals.

Keywords:   University of Oxford, World War I, German scholars, college endowments, civil service, university and industry, university history, England
