Otterbein University Student Government

Dự đoán xổ số Khánh HòaA cornerstone of our shared governance is an equal representation ration of faculty to students. In this governance model, all Otterbein students are members of the Student Assembly. The Student Assembly is represented by the Otterbein University Student Government.

The purpose of Student Government is to serve as the representative assembly of the student body, vested with the powers and responsibilities to represent their constituency according to the Bylaws of the University Senate. We encourage all Otterbein students to connect with their Student Government representatives and officers, voice their questions and concerns, and to participate in one of the many University committees with student members.
