Office of Global Opportunities

Welcome to the Office of Global Opportunities

Ohio University was among the first universities in the United States to endorse the NAFSA Association of International Educators' statement on "Principles for U.S. Study Abroad." In part, this document states: 

"One of the most effective ways to increase U.S. understanding of other languages and cultures and to improve our ability to function effectively in this interdependent world is to provide individuals with opportunities to study abroad. By living and studying in another country, people learn to live with and appreciate different points of view and gain a more global perspective on life's challenges and opportunities."
