Ohio Wesleyan's interdisciplinary Global Studies Institute is the collaborative hub where scholars from the natural sciences, social sciences, humanities, and fine arts converge to explore ideas and issues that span national boundaries, tackle challenges from many perspectives, and develop solutions for real world problems.

The Global Studies Institute is committed to the creation and dissemination of scholarship related to international issues. The institute fosters scholarship on global issues by linking all of OWU's international programs and initiatives across the University. The institute also coordinates the competitive Global Scholars Program, in which a number of high-achieving students take special classes, receive funds for global projects, complete a faculty-supervised thesis, and graduate with a global certificate.
