The Campaign in Brief

Oberlin Illuminate is a seven-year, $250 million fundraising campaign that aims to broaden access to an Oberlin education, strengthen the campus community, enrich the academic program, make Oberlin more competitive, and better position our students for success after they graduate. The campaign will sustain our commitment to academic, artistic, and musical excellence, and will advance our position as a humane and courageous leader in higher education.

OBERLIN’S STRATEGIC TRIAD

We need the financial resources to fully develop cross-disciplinary collaboration and coursework between college, conservatory and museum to leverage this strategic triad.
