The four-year, liberal-arts college and conservatory of music, founded in 1833, is the lead anchor institution for the Oberlin Project, a planned green redesign of the city of Oberlin that serves as a working model of environmental sustainability and economic development. This grant supports the redevelopment of a 13-acre block in the city center as a LEED-platinum Green Arts District and the launch of America’s first carbon-neutral community.
