A university with global impact and reach.

Internationalization and Global Engagement

Oregon State University’s role as a land grant institution and premier 21st century research university demands engagement with global issues, a collaborative and globally focused research and innovation enterprise, and delivery of transformative education that prepares graduates to work effectively in a diverse society and as global citizens. These priorities reach across all elements of OSU’s mission – education, research, and engagement – and are a shared responsibility and campus-wide endeavor.

Internationalization Grants now available

The Office of Faculty Affairs is pleased to announce an Internationalization Grant pilot program, which will award up to $5,000 for projects that advance the university’s internationalization agenda.
