Bob Gatti

Welcome to Otterbein!

The Division of Student Affairs strives to make connections between our students’ curricular and co-curricular experiences. We believe the quality of campus life is crucial to the success of our students.

As mentors and advisors, our staff seeks to serve as your campus advocate and provide assistance with managing a crisis, understanding campus policies and procedures, and assisting you in locating the appropriate university resource. We endeavor to meet your needs outside the classroom

Student Affairs provides each student with opportunities in individual development through quality services and programs focused on your needs. These needs include emotional, social, physical, cultural, spiritual, intellectual, and vocational. Our staff is also available to talk with parents about university policies, practices, and resources and the Otterbein Student Experience.

I welcome the opportunity to meet and discuss with you the roles and responsibilities of the Student Affairs Division. We are proud of what we have accomplished, but, more importantly, we are proud of the accomplishments of our students.

– Bob Gatti, Dean and Vice President for Student Affairs

There is always something to do on campus, from volunteer programs and regular social events for students to cultural and educational opportunities open to the entire community.
