The Office of Global Affairs collaborates with Oregon State University faculty, academic administration, and leaders at INTO OSU to further internationalization and global engagement (IGE) of the university. IGE emphasizes the importance of global research, outreach, partnerships, and impact. Institutional motivations for IGE include improving the readiness of our graduates – both domestic and international – to work in an increasingly globalized world; enabling discovery and innovation for global impact; raising institutional ranking and reputation; enhancing creativity; and advancing diversity, equity, inclusivity, and justice.
Our office provides leadership for university-wide strategy and coordination of global activities. We offer services to facilitate international agreements; catalog and communicate OSU’s global activities; serve as a liaison for international events, delegations, and visitors; and connect OSU with relevant business, non-profit, government agency, and international education communities.
Internationalization and Global Engagement is a campus-wide endeavor. We work closely with administrative offices supporting OSU's internationalization including:
OSU’s research also spans the world. Through our work with the University International Strategies Council, and in conversations with faculty and administrative staff, we are developing communications channels to make it easier for researchers to find others on campus with whom to collaborate internationally.
If you do not know where on campus to turn to help, please contact us. Our staff are here to connect you with the appropriate university resources.
