The mission of the OIAP is to incorporate an international dimension into the traditional land-grant responsibilities in teaching, research, and outreach, to ensure the global competitiveness of our students and strengthen the services provided to stakeholders in an increasingly complex and dynamic global market place.

Historically, the OIAP has been involved in the design, implementation, and evaluation of sponsored international agricultural programs in emerging and developing economies in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean. These programs span the land-grant responsibilities in teaching, research and development outreach.  As the demand for international services increases, the college is strategically infusing an international component in its land-grant programs to enhance their relevance and effectiveness to produce highly skilled globally competent graduates prepared to address the challenges of an interdependent world community.  Implementing this strategy has resulted in advancing the internationalization of the curricula, creating new opportunities for study abroad, international service learning, international internships and research, and faculty international professional development.
