Inclusive. Innovative. Progressive. It's the best way to describe Otterbein's history, present and future. At Otterbein, an individual's worth has never been measured by gender, by color or by title. This University has only ever asked: Are you ready to learn and to make your community a better place? If the answer is yes, you already know the most important truth about Otterbein. And the story only gets better.
