At Oberlin we flourish as a community—students, scholars, researchers, and creators, contributing to one another’s work and thriving together.
The COVID-19 pandemic calls us to rededicate ourselves to this community in a new way. With every decision we make, each of us must take personal responsibility to protect one another, so that we all may make a difference in our world at this crucial moment in our history. This website gathers the planning, guidance, and support we all need to make good choices and live out our pledge to one another and to our community.
