In support of Ohio State’s international strategic planning process, the Office of Academic Affairs has launched a web page to provide background information and updates to the university community. The portal also provides an opportunity to submit comments, which will be forwarded to the appropriate working groups as well as steering committee co-chairs, Vice Provost Gil Latz and Vice Provost Randy Smith.

Progress continues as all five of the international strategic plan working groups will have met at least once by the end of autumn semester. The groups are meeting to establish recommendations and submit them to the core strategy management team in February 2020.
