About One Oberlin
Liberal arts institutions are facing manifold challenges exacerbated by the uncertain times in which we live. Oberlin College & Conservatory launched an extraordinary project last year of institutional self-examination and strategic reimagining designed to build a new level of educational and operational excellence for Oberlin’s third century.
President Carmen Twillie Ambar will travel across the country this year to talk and engage with alumni, parents, and friends about all things Oberlin. The president will be accompanied by faculty members from the AAPR (Academic & Administrative Program Review) Steering Committee so you can hear about the unprecedented work that created One Oberlin. The resulting report chronicles the work of the Steering Committee and offers a wealth of data about Oberlin. It lays out 10 major recommendations for the college and conservatory that better align our resources to our mission and champion our investments to ensure that Oberlin thrives for years to come. With both the faculty and Board of Trustees’ approval last year, the One Oberlin implementation has now begun.
This is an important time for Oberlin, and the One Oberlin report makes clear the challenges and tremendous opportunities that lie ahead. President Ambar and our faculty members look forward to seeing you and answering your questions about Oberlin’s future.
