Faculty provide individualized education for students

There are countless stories Otterbein students tell about how a professor helped them find their true passion or stayed in touch as a resource for advice after graduation. Our faculty believe in knowing more than just a student’s name. They want to know their career aspirations, interests and how they can help students reach those goals.

Don’t just take our word for it. Here are a few things our students had to say about some of their favorite professors:


“Professor John Kengla (Community Engagement) is one of the most fascinating, genuine and knowledgeable humans who I have had the pleasure to get to know. He brings the best out in every single one of his students and I can personally say that he has helped change my life for the better.” Kennedy Daly ’17

“Ruth Chavez (Nursing) has such a kind heart and is willing to help students in any way she can. She is definitely a great professor to learn from and to look up to. I am so blessed to have a professor like her who believes in me and my passion for nursing.” Charmaine Mosley ’16

“Ioan Hrinca (Math) genuinely cares about his students and he deeply wants them to succeed not only in mathematics, but in every area of life. The dedication this man has for his teaching motivates me to find that same passion within my own major.” Hayley Quinn ’17

“Karen Robinson (Education) is a great professor who is extremely approachable and fun. As my academic adviser, she has inspired me to pursue my wildest dreams, supported me and advocated for me when needed.” Kelsey Woodard ’16

“Professor John Tansey (Chemistry) has made a huge impact on my Otterbein experience, from allowing me to do research with him my first semester to advising me with my future plans and being a friend to me whenever I get stressed about my major.” Will King ’17
