Global Engagement Through International Partnerships & Agreements
Global engagement is an essential component of the overall mission of The University of Alabama “to advance the intellectual and social condition of the people of the state, the nation and the world through the creation, translation and dissemination of knowledge with an emphasis on quality programs in the areas of teaching, research and service.” International engagement serves to achieve a world-class environment for research, scholarship, education, the arts, service, and leadership. It also advances the University’s academic, research, scholarship, and service priorities, consistent with a top tier university, and supports the goals of the 2016 strategic plan.
Do you want to initiate an Agreement?
There are standards and considerations to think about when deciding whether to formalize an international partnership through a Memorandum of Understanding and/or an international agreement. Creating an agreement can lead to research and exchange opportunities for faculty or students at UA and abroad.
Reach out to the staff at the Capstone International Center with ideas or questions. We are here to assist with formalizing international agreements or partnerships.
The University has created a standard MOU template that can be used by faculty and staff who are in the beginning stage of MOU creation. This template has been approved by UA and can be modified as needed with the assistance of the Capstone International Center staff.
