Historically progressive. That is the hallmark of Otterbein University and those connected to this private university nestled in the picturesque, historic Uptown Westerville district in central Ohio.Otterbein University was established in 1847 and named for Philip William Otterbein, a founder of the United Brethren Church. Shaped by its historic relationship with the Church, a set of deeply rooted... values still guide this model community of leaders and learners. Otterbein has set the pace by providing an educational experience that is progressive, innovative and inclusive. Today Otterbein University enrolls 2,919 traditional undergraduate students, 223 adult students enrolled in evening and weekend classes, and 440 graduate students working in one of several master’s degree programs, and some towards a newly established doctoral degree in Nursing. As they did decades ago, the students of today still come from towns in Ohio but they also come from 35 states and 22 countries, enriching the campus through their individual and collective diversity. Integrity, humane values and an inherently just, moral compass have guided Otterbein’s forward-thinking vision and actions—from its curriculum to its responsibilities as a member of academic, regional and global communities.
