    • We direct you to the right offices that draft agreements for the international partnerships that are strategically important to your research.
    • Why?
      • So that all of the offices involved in approving international partnerships are consistent in their agreement strategy
      • So that you do not need to recreate the wheel for every new international partnership
      • Because partnership with an in-country research institution can be essential. Local partners will help you navigate complex local regulations, different cultural norms, networking, etc.
      • So that you quickly get the appropriate approvals for getting a partnership off the ground  
    • Academic Integrity and Undue Foreign Interference

  • Office of Community Engagement - Global Engagement
    • The Office of Community Engagement (OCE) facilitates global visits. International representatives can contact our office to explore opportunities for campus visits, virtual meetings or other engagements.
