International Partnerships

The School of Education values the partnerships that it has with institutions around the world. Faculty, staff, and students learn and grow through these collaborations. We seek to maintain and grow existing SoE-wide partnerships; create new partnerships with universities and organizations that span the globe; and ensure substantive collaborations with generative outcomes.

Proposing New International Agreements

International Agreements, including Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) documents, are one way to forge collaborations between faculty, departments/units, and schools/colleges with external partners.

As required by UW–Madison, the Global Engagement Office will collaborate with all faculty and staff to put forth new agreements from within the SoE. Dr. Adam Nelson, Co-Director of the Global Engagement Office, is the first point of contact within the SoE. He will work with you and Carrie Golden, International Agreements Specialist, on completing the required form and paperwork. For more information about this process, visit the International Agreements Knowledge Base.

Please note, all agreements are vetted through the International Division as they can only be signed by the Vice Provost and Dean of the International Division, by the Provost, or by the Chancellor, and with the prior approval of Dean Diana Hess.
