The Office of Winter Term coordinates preparation for winter term and supports the work of the Winter Term Committee. Oberlin provides a winter term of four weeks in January to encourage and enable students to discover the value of self-education.  This term affords students an opportunity to devise and pursue programs of independent study or research and to undertake, individually or with a group, on- or off-campus, other projects of educational value that the structured curriculum during the academic year cannot accommodate easily.

Winter term provides an opportunity for variations and supplements to the usual course offerings, with an emphasis on experimentation and creativity, intellectual independence, and personal responsibility.
