The Ohio State University - Office of International Programs in Agriculture
The Office of International Programs in Agriculture (IPA) was established in 1955 to coordinate the international efforts of the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES). The chief focus of our work is international development; our key funding partners include the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the United States Department of Agriculture Foreign Agriculture Service (USDA-FAS), and Higher Education for Development (HED). IPA works to engage faculty and students in global programs related to food security and agricultural development, and assists in bringing international visitors, scientists and students to OSU. IPA also coordinates Peace Corps recruitment in Central Ohio.
