Here is some information on previous OHIO Global Academy programs.
Know Ohio, Know the World
The Ohio Global Academy offers two experiential course modules. Each two-week program explores the current challenges and opportunities shaping an increasingly interconnected world. These programs seek to engage participants to develop ideas and approaches for addressing the global and local fight against issues including poverty, inequality, and injustice. The supportive although intense nature of the summer residency programs offer students a unique combination of lectures, discussions, training labs, community visits, and field trips, as well as English language support for non-native speakers.
Featuring a series of lectures and lab sessions led by Ohio University faculty, learn about the growing inequality in the Unites States, in addition to the six most important global challenges today: climate change, public health, terrorism, migration, urban poverty, and inequality.
