Global Leadership Initiative

Fisher students immersed in a global learning experience

The Joseph A. Alutto Global Leadership Initiative was created by The Ohio State University to honor the Interim President and former Executive Vice President and Provost as well as Dean of the Max M. Fisher College of Business for his deep commitment to advancing international educational opportunities.

The initiative provides undergraduate and graduate students at Fisher with the necessary financial resources to engage in innovative global learning experiences through scholarships, programs, partnerships and action-based projects around the world.

  • The university will match — dollar for dollar — every gift up to $4 million made to the initiative.
  • All gifts will be designated as part of the initiative. The Alutto Global Leadership Fund (640139) has been established in support of this initiative.
  • Gifts of $50,000 or more will enable donors to establish a named endowment fund.
  • Donors pledging support of $50,000 or more will receive recognition for their generous contribution.

“Our network of global experts and alumni share their experiences with our students and help them develop a deeper appreciation of other cultures and ideas. We believe this exposure is essential for lifelong learning as well as effective leadership.”
