The search to find Oberlin’s next vice president for finance and administration is under way following the departure of Mike Frandsen, who became president of Wittenberg University. President Carmen Ambar has appointed a nine-member search committee to work along with the consulting firm Isaacson, Miller.  

The search committee, chaired by Professor of Mathematics Robert Bosch, met recently with the search consultants to begin the process of developing a position description and setting a timeline for the search. The committee hopes to identify final candidates by the end of January and conclude the search by the end of February. If you have questions about the search or suggested candidates, please contact Professor Bosch at rbosch@oberlin.edu.
