Office of Communications


As communications specialists, we work to share the many narratives of Oberlin and to celebrate the achievements and accolades of the college and its constituents through a variety of platforms.


Members of the campus community are encouraged to submit ideas for stories that will be considered for both external and internal audiences. Story ideas may be presented to local, regional, or national media and may also appear on the Oberlin College website and shared on the college’s social media platforms. While we can’t guarantee every story will turn into a feature article, we welcome all pitches--there are no bad ideas!

Requesting a Brochure, Program, Poster, or Other Material

For standard office forms, such as letterhead, business cards, and envelopes, please contact Printing Services directly.

Requests for office brochures, invitations, event programs, newsletters, posters, and other like material, should be directed to the director of print and publications. Our creative team is happy to help you clarify your ideas and determine the best format for your project.

Please note that we prioritize projects intended for external audiences (alumni, prospective students, donors, parents, arts patrons) and high-visibility campus events (conferences, lecture series). If in doubt, contact us!

Copy editing and graphic design services are free. Most project costs are related to printing, mail preparation, and postage. In some cases, additional costs may be applied for photography, artwork, or external graphic design.
