An appointed Faculty Advisory Committee is working to arrange the opening of a Gateway office in São Paulo, Brazil in 2014.
The Brazil Gateway will help the university explore partnerships with universities in Brazil through its Academic Partnership Program, designed to increase collaboration on a global level, connect students and faculty with researchers in Brazil and further facilitate global advancements on the world's most pressing issues.
Ohio State's presence inSão Paulo will also fulfill a vital role in the worldwide connectivity of alumni. Through its Global Alumni Services, the Gateway will organize events, create networking opportunities, connect alumni with faculty and students and maintain a database of alumni living in Brazil.
Additionally, the Brazil Gateway will facilitate the university's Executive Training and International Corporate Partnership Programs. These programs will create both student internships and full-time employment opportunities to connect the exceptional resources and talent at Ohio State with corporations in Brazil and beyond.
