Oberlin Alumni Association
2017 Alumni Trustees Election
Oberlin is unusual among liberal arts colleges in that six of the 29 to 37 seats on its Board of Trustees are filled through direct election by alumni. Alumni have a unique opportunity to elect trustees who will join a Board that is mindful of the traditions and heritage of the institution and whose current members take their important fiduciary responsibilities very seriously. The alumni trustee elected this spring will serve a four-year term starting July 1, 2017.
One trustee is elected by alumni each year. All Oberlin graduates are eligible to cast a vote for an alumni-elected trustee, a tradition that dates back to 1878. A vote for one of the candidates is an affirmation of the Oberlin tradition and confirmation of your support for Oberlin. It costs nothing, but has immense value.
Even if you believe both candidates are qualified for a position on the Board of Trustees and will serve Oberlin College well in the coming years, please take the time to review their credentials and vote. Your vote counts!
