Our Mission

The Division of International Programs leads OSU’s internationalization through innovation, service, and collaboration.

Our Vision

We partner with key stakeholders to internationalize the OSU community for the advancement of every individual's global mindset, commitment to diversity, and cultural understanding. We will provide all learners access to global opportunities and experiences to reveal a path to becoming globally minded citizens and promote student success.

Our Values

  • Impact
    We contribute to global awareness in Corvallis, the state of Oregon, the United States, and the world by facilitating the international exchange of ideas, experiences, scholarship, and people.
  • Diversity
    For us, this is more than a buzzword. We have a global, multilayered, and humble approach to diversity; it is deeply embedded in everything we do.
  • Transformation
    We help people engage in dynamic, high impact experiences. As educators, we foster experiences that open minds, promote personal development, and embrace cultural differences.
  • Relationships
    People are at the heart of what we do. We use communication that is inclusive, authentic, and responsive with each individual, in every interaction, and across all communities.
  • Service
    We use our expertise to demystify international systems. We work collaboratively to empower others as they seek new, exciting, and challenging experiences.
  • Community
    We are personally fulfilled by working with sensitive, open, and globally-minded colleagues dedicated to impacting the world.
