Ohio State establishes research exchange program with Nagoya UniversityWith the goal of internationalizing Ohio State's comprehensive range of activities in research, education, and engagement, the Office of International Affairs (OIA) partners with Ohio State academic units to develop and manage a wide array of international collaborations, from general Memoranda of Understanding to more specific joint efforts, which are formalized as Memoranda of Agreement or Student Exchange Agreements.

The Office of International Affairs facilitates the development of formal international agreements, which are driven by Ohio State faculty, deliver specific, mutually agreed upon outcomes, and serve to enhance and further the university’s strategic international goals.
