Oberlin is the place where Karen Flint ’64 first tapped into passions that have flourished throughout her life. It’s where she learned to play harpsichord, and where she learned that any career dream she could envision was within her grasp. A teacher of harpsichord, she also is the founder of an early music ensemble, concert series, and record label.
Even Oberlin itself is a passion: A longtime trustee, Flint is a steadfast supporter of student entrepreneurship. With her husband, she has created a fund that supports innovative work experiences. Called Flint Initiative Grants, they fuel Flint’s enduring legacy at Oberlin, even as she steps away from the board in 2015.
