The Six STEP Categories
A central feature of STEP is giving participants the chance to engage with faculty outside of the classroom in one-on-one meetings as well as in group settings. During their time together, STEP Faculty will help students explore six unique, educational-enriching categories:
- Artistic and Creative Endeavors
- Service-Learning and Community Service
- Education Abroad
- Undergraduate Research
During the spring semester, students will work closely with their STEP Faculty Member to create a written proposal for their chosen STEP Signature Project. Students will submit their proposals on their Student Dashboard.
See what amazing projects our STEP students have experienced over the past 2 years of the program:
NOTE: As of autumn, 2015, the use of STEP funding for international projects in any of the six STEP categories is restricted to programming managed by Ohio State (this could mean a college program, class, Buck-I-SERV, university program...). This restriction is published in the 2015-2016 Signature Project Guidelines for each of the six STEP categories.
Student safety is at the forefront of this policy; OIA works to ensure safety to every extent possible and cannot do this for non-Ohio State experiences. A list of program opportunities can be found at step.osu.edu and on the Office of International Affairs (OIA) website (https://oia.osu.edu/education-abroad).
