For Faculty of Other Colleges

We welcome classes from colleges and universities other than Oberlin. Contact us about resources, or to plan a class visit.

The museum collection functions as a vital teaching resource not only for Oberlin College, but also for colleges and universities throughout Ohio and the region. Professors and students from neighboring institutions are invited to take advantage of the same dynamic programs and in-depth resources offered to the Oberlin academic community.

Professors who are interested in developing a visit can collaborate with the Curator of Academic Programs to develop a class session closely tied with learning objectives. We also offer a general highlights tours of a special exhibition or the Allen’s permanent collection.

For more information on our teaching models, visit our Faculty Resources page.
