Thank you for your participation in the 2020 Alumni-Elected Trustee Ballot! The 2020 voting process is now closed; the deadline was 5 p.m. EDT, Thursday, April 30.

Results will be certified by the Board of Trustees during its June 2020 meeting with the winner announced in the July issue of Around the Square.

If you have any questions please contact the Office of Alumni Relations at alumni@oberlin.edu

Oberlin is unusual among liberal arts colleges in that six of the 29 to 37 seats on its Board of Trustees are filled through direct election by alumni. Alumni have a unique opportunity to elect trustees who will join a Board that is mindful of the traditions and heritage of the institution and whose current members take their important fiduciary responsibilities very seriously.

All Oberlin graduates are eligible to cast a vote for an alumni-elected trustee, a tradition that dates back to 1878. Each alumni-elected trustee serves a four-year term, with the terms staggered to allow for at least one election each year. The candidate receiving the most votes will be declared elected for a four-year term starting July 1, 2020. A vote is an affirmation of the Oberlin tradition and confirmation of your support for Oberlin. It costs nothing but has immense value.

Even if you believe all candidates are qualified for a position on the Board of Trustees and will serve Oberlin College well in the coming years, please take the time to review their credentials and vote. Your vote counts!
