Affiliate groups are alumni who are bound together by common characteristics, interests, and concerns. In addition to their status as alumni, they may wish to form groups at their own initiative, for purposes that are consistent with those of the Alumni Association, but that may not be directly addressed by current goals and activities of the Association.
Active affiliate groups include:
- Oberlin Alumni Association of African Ancestry (OA4)
- Oberlin Asian Pacific American Alumni Association (OAPAAA)*
- Oberlin Christian Alumni Association (OCAA)
- Oberlin College Alumni Bowlers Association (OCABA)
- John W. Heisman Club
- Oberlin Lambda Alumni (OLA)*
- Oberlin Latino/a Alumni Association (OLAA)
- Oberlin Steel Alumni Association (OSteel)
- Oberlin College Ultimate Players Alumni Association
Each affiliate group selects its own chair, co-chairs, and steering committee members. Affiliate group chairs and co-chairs represent the affiliate group on the Alumni Council.
* A representative sits on the Executive Board of the Oberlin Alumni Association.
