Digital Engagement Center

The Digital Engagement Center is an effort through the Office of Advancement to promote student philanthropy on campus and raise money for the Annual Fund. Student callers are essential to the success of these efforts, and to connecting alumni and parents with the college and conservatory. Our callers, known as Student Ambassadors, contact thousands of alumni and parents each year to ask for gifts and raise hundreds of thousands of dollars! Student Ambassadors also provide opportunities for Oberlin students to participate in philanthropic efforts throughout the academic year as well as promoting the Senior Class Gift program!

The Digital Engagement Center provides many opportunities for students to get involved based on what interests them most! Once hired, students can work as philanthropy event planners, senior class gift committee members, and campus creators.
