Antioch University and the Coalition for the Common Good

Antioch University is a founding member of the Coalition for the Common Good, a higher education collaboration with Otterbein University. In 2023, the Higher Learning Commission approved this strategic affiliation between these two mission-aligned institutions committed to preparing students to advance social justice, democracy, and the common good, with a focus on graduate programs, learner pathways and strategic partnerships.

Both Antioch and Otterbein remain separately accredited by HLC. The intention of the parties is to grow the coalition into a national university system of mission-consistent universities, expanding opportunities for students at each of the affiliate member institutions.

As a private, not-for-profit university system, we will expand degree offerings, offer programs in more locations nationwide, provide innovative learning modalities including online, low-residency, and hybrid settings, create new opportunities for student engagement across institutions, and enhance institutional capacities and contain costs through selected shared services.

As an Antioch student, your program will remain as described in this catalog. Your degree will be conferred from Antioch University. What will change in the coming years may be access to new program pathways and more degree options. You may also, in the course of your studies, meet an Otterbein student who is studying for a semester on an Antioch campus or in an Antioch program. A number of Otterbein’s graduate programs will be transitioned to Antioch, such as the new Graduate School of Nursing and Health Professions. Finally, Antioch University will begin offering selected programs such as the Doctor of Education and the MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Otterbein’s beautiful Ohio campus. The affiliation does not affect your financial aid package in any way.
