People and Process

The Strategic Planning Steering Committee is composed of members of the Oberlin College Board of Trustees, as well as Oberlin College faculty, students, staff, administrators, and alumni. While this composition of the Steering Committee seeks to ensure that the strategic planning process will be informed by members’ diverse experiences with and relationships to Oberlin, Steering Committee members’ participation in this vital institutional planning effort will not seek to represent the interests of any particular constituency, but will be oriented and focused towards Oberlin as a whole.
