Who We Are
The Ohio International Consortium (OIC) was established in 1991 in order to identify, develop, and expand beneficial international relationships that might contribute to the enhancement of Ohio’s global profile and the international expertise and activities of the state’s public four-year universities.
The Ohio International Consortium serves to maximize existing resources and to minimize duplication through cooperation in the areas of student study abroad, internationalization of the curriculum, global opportunities for faculty, and in the discussion of issues concerning international students and scholars.
The four-year public universities of Ohio currently have exchange relationships, faculty research collaboration, and enrollments of international students and scholars from more than 150 countries around the world.
The Ohio International Consortium has the responsibility to coordinate and implement the inter-institutional agreement for pooled access to study abroad programs. The OIC meets regularly at which issues of mutual interest related to international education are addressed.
