In alignment with the College of Forestry's overarching commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, the International Programs Office aspires to create a safe, welcoming, and supportive environment for OSU students going abroad, international students coming to COF, and for our visiting faculty, researchers, and partners. We are committed to providing equitable and inclusive opportunities and supporting an affirming and fulfilling experience for all COF community members to enhance their academic, professional, and personal goals through international activity.  An international experience – study, research or internship - is an amazing way to learn about yourself, your field, and the world around you, and we believe that every person should have that opportunity. The breadth of lived experiences and identities in our global COF community is what makes our programs life-changing.
