International Partnerships

As a globally-engaged university, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee collaborates with academic and research institutions based in other countries. The Center for International Education facilitates the establishment of academic and research-related agreements with institutions and organizations based in other countries, in accordance with best practices in the international higher education field.

UWM policy S-33.5 establishes guidelines for negotiating and entering into inter-institutional agreements. Please familiarize yourself with these guideline before contacting CIE for assistance. Review of proposed agreements by the Overseas Programs and Partnerships Advisory Committee takes place twice each semester

UWM has established multiple types of agreements in the past. Unique circumstances may require a different, specifically-tailored agreement. The time needed to draft, revise, review, approve, and sign agreements differs by agreement type. Contact CIE well in advance of the date you hope the agreement will be finalized to begin the review process.
