The Office of International Affairs, cognizant of our global reach as Buckeyes, is committed to diversity, equity, inclusion and accountability. We recognize our responsibility in modeling a supportive and accessible environment where all students, faculty and staff – no matter their backgrounds, identities or lived experiences – can collaborate, listen, learn and work for the good of us all.
We celebrate both the contributions and the diverse linguistic and cultural identities of our global communities. We commit to the continued promotion of diversity on our campus through our work, goals, advocacy and service. Diversity enriches our university, local community and connections around the world.
Through an ongoing dialogue with all those we work with, support and serve, we strive to actively and thoughtfully respond to the challenging and dynamic realities of our local, national and global environments. We will promote only a culture of inclusivity, compassion and mutual respect for all, and are dedicated to removing any barriers to our collective success. As Buckeyes, our diversity is our strength.
