The Office of Global Affairs is developing a formal strategic plan, aligned with OSU's Strategic Plan 4.0. The final plan is to be released in Fall, 2020. We adhere to following definition for Internationalization and Global Engagement (IGE):

Comprehensive internationalization is a commitment, confirmed through action, to infuse international and comparative perspectives throughout the teaching, research, and service missions of higher education. It shapes institutional ethos and values and touches the entire higher education enterprise.1
