Internationalization

Orientation Leaders

The Ohio State University believes that a global university is one in which international experiences and perspectives are fully integrated into its teaching, research and engagement mission, and that if universities are to prosper, they must be global in orientation, reach and reputation.

To enhance the university’s rich history of global engagement and build upon the university’s international successes, Ohio State launched an international strategic planning process in mid-April 2019 that will result in an ‘International Strategic Plan 2020-2025’ to be presented to the President and Provost for approval in April 2020 for implementation in spring 2020.

The steering committee is composed of senior academic and operational leaders, including representation from the colleges, regional campuses and administrative units, to ensure that the International Strategic Plan is academically aligned and operationally sound. The plan to be developed will clearly articulate the academic priority for internationalization and the implications for the operations side of the university.

Gil Latz, vice provost for global strategies and international affairs, and Randy Smith, vice provost for academic programs, will co-chair the steering committee. The steering committee will be assisted in its work by Ohio State’s Chief Strategy Officer, Gail Marsh, and Robin Helms, an external expert on campus internationalization from the American Council on Education, both of whom will provide consultation and guidance.

The strategic planning process will consist of engaging and listening to stakeholders, synthesizing and analyzing information and documenting and prioritizing recommendations.
