Alumni-elected trustees hold six of the 34 positions on Oberlin’s Board of Trustees. Under normal circumstances, one trustee is elected each year to a term of six years. Service as an alumni-elected trustee is limited to two terms, although an alumni-elected trustee can be selected by the Board of Trustees to serve additional terms. One member of each graduating class is elected class trustee by their own classmates, the class prior to them, and the class after them (i.e., the class trustee from the class of 2009 is elected by vote of the classes of 2008, 2009, and 2010). Each class trustee is elected for a term of three years.
The candidate must hold an Oberlin College degree, earned or honorary (as required by Oberlin College Bylaws), and must be able to serve a full six-year term on the Board of Trustees.
