Oberlin Center for Convergence (StudiOC)
Oberlin Center for Convergence (StudiOC) brings together the college and conservatory to address the complex, seemingly intractable challenges of our era. StudiOC theme-based learning communities are multidisciplinary, which allows students to make connections across disciplines and develop meaningful interactions with their peers and with faculty.
2023–24 Learning Communities
StudiOC learning communities are available to first-year and current students.
StudiOC learning communities typically meet in a modern, flexible, and active learning space that features large picture windows, ample classroom space, and a common area. It is part of the Peter B. Lewis Gateway Center. Classes may meet remotely due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Fourteen faculty and staff members comprise the StudiOC Planning Committee. The group reviews and approves applications for course clusters as proposed by faculty from the college and conservatory. Faculty and other administrators have access to a conference room to review proposals, curriculum, and other related projects.
