About Colin

Go forth and set the world on fire.” – St. Ignatius Loyola

Colin Gabler is an Assistant Professor of Marketing and Freeman Fellow at Ohio University's College of Business. He is also the COB faculty liaison to the Office of Sustainability and Director of the Global Consulting Program.

Colin earned his Ph.D. (2013) from the University of Alabama, his M.A. (2007) in creative writing from Wilkes University, and B.A. (2003) in marketing from Lycoming College. The above quote illustrates his take on how to live life both inside and outside of the classroom.

Prior to academia, Colin spent five years in the nonprofit sector, finding time to coach basketball and write for an entertainment magazine. Most importantly, he met his wife, Kathleen, who is now pursuing a doctorate in environmental & plant biology here at OU.


Outside of the classroom, you can find Colin strumming guitar, cooking, hiking, playing tennis, fixing up his 1890s home, or hanging out with his family. He loves to travel to faraway places, but his favorite activity is porch-sitting with Kathleen soaking up the Athens life.
