The Office of Graduate International Outreach (OGIO) was established within the Graduate School in July, 2011. The focus on international outreach is aligned with the University of Florida’s mission in creating a “broadly diverse environment necessary to foster multi-cultural skills and perspectives in its teaching and research for its students to contribute and succeed in the world of the 21st century”. The OGIO serves as a catalyst for collaboration, leveraging existing structures and opportunities in the interest of international outreach and student success, serving as a resource for information on graduate international outreach opportunities. In addition, the unit assists doctoral students to identify international teaching opportunities. Recruitment efforts continue to move forward in targeted countries across the world, with a specific focus on Latin America. We are forming agreements to enroll Latin American graduate students with government funding. We are also identifying all international applicants who have external support from government and private fellowship sources.
