Work Groups

The international strategic planning work groups represent a broad cross-section of stakeholders across the university and have a depth and breadth of expertise in their respective fields of interest and professions. The main objective of each work group is to identify goals and capture ways to move the university to a new level of international engagement that aligns with Ohio State’s mission as a 21st century land-grant institution.
