Mark Sapara brings over 30 years of higher education experience to Oberlin College and Conservatory in both student affairs and academic services. He is thrilled to be back in Student Affairs, overseeing International Student & Scholar Services, the Multicultural Resource Commons, Office for Disability and Access, and the Office of Religious and Spiritual Life.
