Antioch University Chancellor William "Bill" Groves

The Coalition for the Common Good is the first system to be created in which the affiliate institutions are bound by a common mission of educating for social justice and a commitment to building and preserving democracy. This mission-driven system could not come at a more important inflection point in our nation’s history. Our pluralistic American democracy requires that educational institutions prepare students to be effective and engaged citizens.

The Coalition for the Common Good was developed as a model that allows universities to move from being competitors to collaborators to better serve students and our communities while preserving their own institutional identities and cultures. Moreover, as a national system the Coalition will be better positioned to address the needs of industry in our states and nation providing accessible and affordable workplace education.


This unique, nonprofit university system will support students nationwide with various campuses throughout the United States and worldwide through robust online and low-residency programs. 

Antioch University campuses are in Keene, New Hampshire; Los Angeles, California; Santa Barbara, California; Seattle, Washington; and Yellow Springs, Ohio, while Otterbein’s campus is in Westerville, Ohio.
