Otterbein's History

Otterbein鈥檚 story begins in the mid-1800s, before the abolition of slavery,聽before the women鈥檚 rights movement, before equality and inclusion were聽rights. Otterbein was founded by the Church of the United Brethren in聽Christ in 1847.聽Those qualities have built Otterbein into what it is today: a regionally and nationally accredited and recognized聽university offering bachelor and master degrees to a wide variety of聽students.

We included women as faculty members and as students from our聽founding, and we were the first institution in the nation to do so. Otterbein聽admitted students of color before the Civil War and welcomed Japanese-American students who had been sent to internment camps during World War II. And, we gave students a voice in our story through our unique聽governance system beginning in the 1960s. Today students from diverse backgrounds enhance Otterbein’s campus by sharing their unique experiences and perspectives.
