As the Board of Trustees prepared for its March 7 to 9 meeting, the bias-based incidents and the community’s response we’re unfolding on campus.

“In light of this, the board reconsidered its meeting schedule and changed it to allow for substantial discussion of these events,” says board chair Clyde McGregor ’74.

As the meeting came to a close, the board composed the resolution that follows. It was unanimously adopted.

Resolved, that the Board of Trustees of Oberlin College:

Joins students, staff, faculty, alumni and others in the Oberlin community in deploring and condemning the bias-based incidents and vandalism perpetrated on the campus community in recent weeks,

Reaffirms the College’s commitment to safeguarding its students,

Commends the students, staff, faculty and alumni who planned and participated constructively in the Day of Solidarity and related activities, and

Applauds the thoughtful response by the President and senior staff to the bias-based incidents.
