Our Guiding Values
Transformative, High-Impact Learning
We are committed to learning practices that engage and challenge students, introduce international and cultural diversity themes into the curriculum, support institutional retention and graduation efforts, and contribute to cumulative learning that maximizes achievement.
Equity, Inclusion, and Access
We believe that global education experiences provide critical advantages in the development of an educated citizen and strive to meet all OSU students where they are in their learning path and support them in whatever ways needed to meet their academic and personal goals.
Global education is inherently complex and requires ongoing evaluation and assessment to ensure we are meeting standards of good practice, attending to duty of care for our students, and responsibly managing the resources entrusted to us.
We regard on-campus and external collaborative partnerships as the cornerstone of strong global education programming, allowing OSU to engage our students in hands-on learning experiences that enhance the lives of our students and those with whom we work while reducing unintended harm to the communities and organizations hosting our students and programs.
