ANNOUNCEMENTS

Orloff Online Play

Rich Orloff, OC '73 produced and directed an online play based on his stage play Vietnam 101.

The play, performed oriignally on Zoom around the time of the 50th Anniversary of  the Kent State shootings, reflects some of the history of campus life between 1964 and 1970.  It is staged like a documentary film, drawn from interviews Rich Orloff conducted with students from that era.

The production remains on Rich Orloff's website until June 15.  It is entitled "Days of Possibilities"

Here is the link to Rich Orloff's website.

A discussion forum is on the ??Class Chats tab.


 

Betsy DeVos'  DOE Sexual Misconduct Rules

Many of you may have seen articles or heard on the news about new rules issued by the Department of Education that affect the manner in which cases of sexual misconduct are to be handled in institutions receiving federal funding--which includes practically all public and many private institutions.  

The emphasis in these new rules is on granting more rights to the accused in these cases.

You'll recall that a group of your classmates and their friends had recommended some changes along these lines to the College/Conservatory over the past two years.

While our group has not studied these new rules in detail, we have discussed the news reports.  At this time, we are choosing not to become involved with Oberlin's legal team and Title IX office, unless we are asked.  Those within the Oberlin College and Conservatory will have to decide on what approach to take with these rules. Under the present, very trying circumstances for all institutions, our group doesn't think the time is right for our input.

 A REMINDER FOR USING THIS SITE

 

Are you here because you want to see “More” about a post you learned about via an email from Oberlin College and Conservatory 1968  site?

  Search for the name of the person who made the post.  It will be under their profile.

OR

Go to the What's New tab on the left hand side and search for their name there.

Thanks.

 

Here is an article that appeared in Around the Square this week.

Members of the Classes of 1967 and 1969 are joining this site in order to have a single site for discussion of concerns around the Gibson's lawsuit.

Since our classes will all rejoin  for the next cluster reunion, this anticipates that.  We hope to be able to combine the current Class of 1968 and 1969 sites and make it a central portal for all three classes, once we solve  some technical issues.  Class members from '68 and '69 may also chime in on whether that's a good move before we do so.

The One Oberlin Report:

President Ambar and other Oberlin Faculty have planned a speaking tour to inform alumni about this report and the progress towards implementation.

The Report WAS adopted by the General Faculty by a nearly unanimous vote in May.

Classmates:

Since most of the chatter on the site recently has been about the financial state of the College, I'm going to try to  improve the structure by asking you to post on that topic here instead.  Let's see if that helps the flow.

You will notice that you can Reply to Others or start a new topic.

You can choose whether you receive all updates or not.

Pictures and documents can be posted here, too

HI, Everyone:

Thanks to Aaron Levin, we now have a recording of the Class Memorial Service, held during the Reunion. Effectively edited, it is about 26 minutes long.  You can listen to it by clicking below. Whatever software you use for listening to audio should start up when you click the link.

 If for some reason that doesn't work for you, let me know.  I can email a file that is small enough for most emails to handle.

Thanks.
