The Trustee Search Committee of the Alumni Council welcomes suggestions for future nominations for alumni-elected trustees. Candidates must hold an Oberlin degree and be able to complete the four-year term. If you wish to suggest a candidate, please send a letter of nomination, including background information on the suggested candidate, his or her address, and a description of the assets the candidate would bring to the board. Send your letter to the Executive Director of the Alumni Association, Oberlin College, 65 East College Street, Suite 4, Oberlin, Ohio 44074-1089. You may also call 440-775-8692 or check Tappan Network, the alumni web site, for more details. There is no limit to the number of candidates you may suggest.
In addition, the Nominations Committee of the Board of Trustees is interested in suggestions for non-alumni trustee members. Please forward names in the same manner as above.
One class trustee is elected from each year's graduating class. All members of the current graduating class are eligible for election, and a nominating form is emailed to all seniors in early March.
