O-H-I-O cheer in IndiaWhen Ohio State received the Senator Paul Simon Award for Comprehensive Internationalization earlier this year, it was the culmination of the university’s efforts to develop programs, course work and outreach opportunities in Columbus, Ohio, and abroad. While “comprehensive internationalization” can seem like an abstract concept, it’s plain to see at Ohio State. There are a myriad ways in which Ohio State continues to enhance its global stature through its teaching, research and engagement mission. More international students are finding their way to Ohio State; students are studying abroad in record numbers; grants and scholarships are supporting research, language immersion programs, area studies and study abroad; international themes are integrated into the curriculum; and connections are made in regions throughout the world as a result of Ohio State's Global Gateways.

NAFSA: Association of International Educators is the world’s largest nonprofit association dedicated to international education. The Simon Award is universally considered the most prestigious award for comprehensive internationalization in the U.S.
