OBERLIN — Oberlin College President Marvin Krislov announced this morning that he’s leaving the college next year.

Krislov will have served as president for a decade when he leaves June 30. He said it was time to seek new professional challenges, citing completion of a comprehensive campaign and a new strategic plan.

“Serving this great college, conservatory and community has been an honor and a privilege,” Krislov said in a statement issued by the college Tuesday morning. “Working with our terrific faculty, staff, students, parents and alumni to further Oberlin's mission and to honor Oberlin's values has been the most educational and fulfilling experience of my life.”

Krislov said Clyde McGregor, chairman of the college’s board of trustees, will be leading the selection process, but he will aid in the transition.
