Patrick S. Osmer,
Vice Provost of Graduate Studies and Dean of the Graduate School
The importance of graduate education keeps growing as the world becomes more complex. This recognition is at the heart of international collaborations that we are building at Ohio State.
We are currently putting the finishing touches on a joint program with the University of Sao Paulo. This program builds upon long-standing relationships between our faculty in the College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and faculty in USP’s agricultural college. Graduate students participating in this program will spend one year or more as graduate students at the other university and will earn a Ph.D. in Plant Translational Sciences from Ohio State and a Ph.D. in International Plant Cell and Molecular Biology from USP.
The objective behind this collaboration is to nurture outstanding research scientists who can help create innovations that solve problems, such as biofuels and global warming, facing the world today. The strongest collaborations, like this one, begin between students and faculty, often on a one-to-one basis. Are there collaborations in your graduate program that we can build upon to create other international partnerships? I invite you to share them with me.
Patrick S. Osmer is vice provost for graduate studies and dean of the Graduate School at Ohio State. He is currently serving as past chair of the board of directors for the Council of Graduate Schools. Osmer was chair of the Ohio State astronomy department from 1993-2006.
