Since his arrival at Oberlin in 1998, Ernie Iseminger has been a key player in the success of Oberlin's $165 million fund-raising effort. As such, he was named Oberlin's new vice president for development and alumni affairs in June, with oversight of all fund-raising and Alumni Association activities.

As assistant director, then director of principal gifts for several years, Iseminger helped hail major donations to The New Oberlin Century campaign, which, with just seven months remaining, has reached more than 95 percent of its goal.

"I've been fortunate to work at Oberlin during an exciting time in its history," says Iseminger. "I very much enjoy working with our alumni and furthering the mission of Oberlin. An investment in the College by all of its graduates is critical if we are going to continue to excel as an institution of higher learning."
