WE ARE enrolling the most diverse class in history — for five consecutive years.

Equity & Inclusion at Otterbein University

At Otterbein, we believe we’re better if we learn and grow together to address the issues. There are milestones and commitments in Otterbein’s history that make us proud of our long-standing position of inclusiveness.

We also believe we should expect more of ourselves as a community, as individuals and an institution — always. The work, the need for understanding and respect — it’s never done. Read on to learn more about our ongoing commitment and the people and events that help shape our shared experience and our values.

Incident Reporting

If you see, hear or experience an incident of bias or discrimination, report it immediately to the Otterbein Police at 614-823-1222, or via the Silent Witness form.  You should also contact the Associate Dean of Student Affairs at 614-823-1250. For a full list of reporting options, please read the Bias Incident Reporting Policy (PDF).

Equity and Inclusion are ongoing pursuits, and so should education about the issues. The Otterbein Community considers diversity a source of innovation, creativity and human flourishing.
