Our Core Priorities

Oberlin College has always been a pioneer, and with the launch of Oberlin: Illuminate, we will ensure that the light that is Oberlin remains burning brightly. We are devoted to:

  • Increasing funding for scholarships so talented students can continue to access an Oberlin education, regardless of socio-economic background.
  • Endowing professorships to attract outstanding, ambitious faculty dedicated to engaging students in creative and scholarly work that goes beyond what can be learnt in the classroom.
  • Transforming student experiences, exploring new paths of interdisciplinary collaboration, and harnessing the power of technology to enrich and expand our programs.
  • Strengthening the vital support to the college with renewed vigor in our Annual Fund, underwriting the daily operations of our classrooms and learning spaces.
