The Value of Internationalization

Oregon State University recognizes the value of international perspectives in its mission to promote economic, social, cultural and environmental progress for people across Oregon, the nation and the world.

Internationalizing the Student Experience

In the 21st century, every business is international, and almost every endeavor involves working with people from different cultural backgrounds. International programs bring OSU to the world by engaging students in study abroad, exchanges and global internships. And they bring the world to OSU by educating students from around the globe, creating a vibrant international community that benefits everyone on campus. Private support opens doors of opportunity for students to participate in international education and research at OSU and abroad.

Global Engagement in Teaching, Research and Outreach

OSU has a long history of international academic collaboration through the research and outreach efforts of renowned faculty, often working in interdisciplinary teams. International programs foster global partnerships that contribute to excellence and innovation in classrooms, laboratories and communities. Your generosity supports OSU faculty initiatives that pay dividends in Oregon and around the world.
