This historic college opened in1847 as Oterbein University of Ohio, named for Philip William Otterbein (1726-1813), a founder of the Church of the Brethren in Christ. The church later merged with the Evangelical Church to become the United Methodist Church. Otterbein was one of the first colleges in the United States to open its doors to persons of color and women without restrictions on what they could study. While Otterbein's educational offering have evolved over the years to meet society's needs, the college has remained committed to the liberal arts as the foundation of all learning.
