ANNOUNCEMENTS

The College/Conservatory has recently organized its presentation of the Gibson's litigation on this web URL.

 

 

https://www.oberlin.edu/news-and-events/bakery-litigation

 


 

I wanted to make site members aware of an email follow-up to President Ambar regarding the reunion committee's expressed concern regarding Title IX procedures in sexual misconduct cases at Oberlin.  

This email was sent last Friday, August 9.

The letter was signed by Susan Reese, Paul Safyan, Gideon Schein, and Richard Zitrin.

 

 

Dear President Ambar:

We hope you and your family have been able to enjoy a well-earned vacation together, and you were all able to relax, separately and together.

We are circling back to you again about our concerns in regard to Oberlin College/Conservatory’s Title IX processes and policies.

 We can only imagine how many “medicine balls” you have to juggle, but, at the same time, we feel a great sense of urgency about moving forward on these Title IX matters.

Back in May, you stated in an email that you would “recount” the policy changes in this area to us “soon.” Are you able to suggest a time this month when you can do that with the four of us co-signers?

Second, recognizing the complexity of sexual harassment cases, we would like to be a part of a task force to re-define these policies and procedures.  Such a task force should include alumni faculty, staff, the trustees, and students.  We recommend that our classmate Susan Reese, who has considerable experience and expertise with such cases, be a member of this task force.  If such a task force already exists, could you please add her?  We know you value the contributions of alumni.  This would be a vital and meaningful collaboration for us and for you.

Finally, we hope that as part of the policy review, that you have brought this matter before the General Faculty for their consideration.  If not, we recommend that a full set of recommendations come before them by the end  Jalanuary’s Winter Term.

Why do we feel this is so time-sensitive?  Because we think in the current legal and social climate, Oberlin’s practices are open to attack in the courts.  As we indicated in our May 22 email, we also think that the existing policy and its practices are not consistent with the basic notions of fairness and respect for individual rights that are at the core of our College.

Please get back to us as soon as you can.

 

 Best regards,

 

Please share this with other classmates who are not site members and continue the discussion in Class Chats on this site.

Thanks.

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.

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.
