A note from the Ombudsperson
Last November we sent you a note asking you to nominate students, faculty, and staff for the positions in the Oberlin College Dialogue Center (OCDC). Thanks to your efforts, we received more than 140 nominations. About 60 of the nominees applied and we were able to select and train 41 individuals. The training was provided to Oberlin College students, faculty, staff, and two teachers and four students from nearby Oberlin High school.
Currently, the Ombuds office has 53 members in OCDC who are trained to mediate, facilitate, and are ready to work with us in different capacities. Refer to our membership list.
Thank you again for your participation in helping us to select this dynamic group of people for the Oberlin College Dialogue Center.
