The Office of Diversity Programs & Resources
Whether you consider yourself diverse or simply admire all the diversity the world has to offer, make it a part of your Otterbein experience. The Office of Diversity hosts programs for you to explore diverse populations academically, culturally, and socially-you never know, you might make a new friend!
The Otterbein Gospel Choir was organized in the fall of 1990 to give students a medium to express their culture through music, in the form of standard, traditional and contemporary gospel songs. Today the choir is more diverse than ever, and full of students who enjoy singing! The choir performs annually for the Martin Luther King, Jr. Convocation and Gospel Festival, and also accepts engagements for area churches, schools, and other organizations. Contact Choir Director, Mrs. LaJoyce Cain, for more information.
William Henry Fouse House of Black Culture (HBC)
The House of Black Culture was named after Otterbein's first African-American graduate, William Henry Fouse. The HBC, established in 1994, serves as a meeting and social space for African-American students. The house offers living space to five individuals who are involved in the African-American Student Union and/or other diversity organizations on campus. The HBC promotes cultural exchange through programming and discussions for the Otterbein community. The HBC also assists the Office of Diversity in co-hosting various programs throughout the year.
