2022 SDG Awareness Week
April 1 to April 30, 2022
The School of Global Studies and Partnerships officially adopted UN Sustainable Development Goals as the framework for OSU’s global engagement in 2020. Since then, SGSP has been engaging different units on campus to promote awareness of the SDGs on campus and in the community. Last year, SGSP coordinated the first SDGs awareness week in April 2021 with six events, in partnership with OSU Student Government Association, Spears School of Business and Edmon Low Library.
This year, in conjunction of the celebration of Earth Month, we continue to collaborate with departments and units on campus, as well as our global partners to raise awareness. The purpose of this month long celebrate is to raise SDG awareness on campus, share our progress locally and globally, and advance our actions through partnerships. We will feature a wide array of programs to highlight initiatives and efforts on campus, in our local community and through our global partnerships.

Webinar: Identifying and Labeling Scholarly Work with Sustainable Development Goals
Description: The UN Sustainable Development Goals are increasingly being used as a framework to categorize and analyze scholarship such as research articles. Commercial entities such as RELX (Elsevier) and Digital Science are mapping SDG research and these efforts have an effect on research visibility, university ranking programs, and can tie directly to OSU’s land-grant mission and opportunities such as the APLU Public Impact Research initiative. This session will help participants recognize how research is being categorized by SDG, how to find SDG-related research, and generate a plan for describing and highlighting their own work.
