Global Education Programs

“Preparing Buckeyes to be students of the world.”

For ODI students, a global education experience is often the most transformational opportunity of their academic career. ODI has expanded its global education opportunities in recent years, offering learning trips to France-Morocco, Guyana, and Panama with more locations in development. All ODI affiliated programs offer students a chance to broaden their thinking and expand their horizons in ways they could never have imagined.

Why should you participate? Global Education:

  • Invests in your future- employers, graduate schools and researchers all look for global experience
  • Offers global and cross-cultural competencies
  • Cultivates personal, professional, and intellectual growth
  • Enhances awareness of yourself and your own culture
  • Develops self-reliance and problem-solving skills
  • Creates confidence and adaptability
