From the Dean

Welcome to the Graduate School at Otterbein University!  We are proud to have provided advanced education for students in professional programs for over 25 years.  Our focus is on students first -- assuring quality programs that challenge students to achieve and excel in their professional lives.

We hope you choose to join us!  Come to Otterbein to study and establish positive and formative relationships with faculty, analyze current issues that affect you today and will prepare you for the future, and develop personal skills that will allow you to meet your professional goals.

We understand the working adult. Most of our students, like you, will enroll in graduate studies, while balancing work and family responsibilities.  We offer evening classes and flexible classes (online and hybrid) that complement your work and family schedules, whether it be in the business, education, allied health or nursing world.

Our commitment is to you, both now, while you are searching for the right program and, most importantly, while you are with us as a graduate student!  Otterbein has much to offer -- quality education offered by faculty active in their professional fields from a suburban accessible campus at an affordable and competitive cost. 

Looking forward to seeing you on campus,

 Barbara Schaffner Signature
