Furthering Ohio State’s mission to create and discover knowledge to improve the well-being of our state, regional, national and global communities, the Office of International Affairs partners with Ohio State’s academic units to develop, facilitate and advance a wide array of international collaborations.
The number of university’s engagements fell in 2020 – a reminder of the challenging year it was. However, 27 agreements (compared to 32 in 2019) were formalized, of which 12 were with partners collaborating with Ohio State for the first time. These agreements embraced objectives of establishing clinical externships, research collaborations, customized executive education programs, welcoming visiting scholars and much more.
The international partnerships team proudly supports Ohio State in advancing internationalization, particularly on critical matters in today’s world. As the university and Ohio State Wexner Medical Center adapt to the changing needs and interests at the heart of our campus community and throughout the far reaches of our world, the team will continue working to advance such significant and meaningful international collaborations.
