"Belize was wonderful. I learned so much and was really able to apply a lot of the strategies I've been learning here in an actual classroom setting, which was very exciting for me!"-Robyn Simma (pictured left)

New International Strategic Plan

  • This college level plan includes COE faculty input and will be included in the university's International Strategic Plan set to be published in November 2015.

Dr. Robert Davis is traveling with OSU's delegation in China to represent the COE and meet with our activity partners:

  • Sun Yat-sen Univeristy-Dual Degree in Curriculum Studies & Leadership 
  • Shanghai Normal Univeristy- A reciprocal exchange program, led by Dr. Hongyu Wang, for undergrads to explore comparative education.
NEW OSU launched Studio Abroad a web-based software that will automate study abroad processes from application to post-trip surveys. All OSU Travel Courses will use this site.

This may be record setting year for the number of COE student travelers: we expect >100 students!
Special thanks to all of the faculty that offer these amazing opportunities to our students!

There is still room in most of the travel courses. Have students contact Vallory Vencill, at vallory.vencill@okstate.edu.
