The following guidance is provided to assist the Georgia State University community in developing and implementing international partnership agreements. These agreements involve faculty and student exchanges, study abroad programs, collaborative research, economic development projects and other activities with organizations and higher education institutions in other parts of the world.
International education is an important strategic priority of Georgia State University. As such, international agreements should be concluded only in those instances where there is a demonstrated intent or commitment of the parties to initiate programs. Our aim is to enter into agreements that result in substantive activities.
This guidance also:
- Seeks to achieve uniformity and consistency in developing, processing and implementing international partnership agreements.
- Establishes parameters for Georgia State University international partnership agreements at three levels--the department, the college and the university.
- Provides guidance and reference to templates and sample documents.
- Creates a process to ensure timely and efficient processing of international partnership agreements.
Please direct questions and requests for assistance in preparing international partnership agreements to the Office of International Initiatives.
