Best Practices in Cultivating International Partnerships
Originally held March 13, 2019 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EST

Hosted by the UPCEA International Network

Establishing and managing successful partnerships with universities is a key aspect of internationalization for many institutions. As continuing education programs find future growth overseas, and increase global student mobility, they quickly discover that cultivating partnerships often takes longer than expected and there are many speed bumps along the way. In this webinar, members of UPCEA's International Network will showcase lessons learned from partnerships with universities and secondary schools in Europe, Asia, Africa, South America, and Australia, as well as share a case study on developing strategic partnerships to increase global student mobility at US institutions. No two partnerships are the same and every institution has different policies and procedures for Memorandum of Understanding (MOUs) and Memorandum of Agreement (MOAs). So, whether you've been tasked with forging a partnership for the first time or you've done a few, this informative webinar will provide helpful strategies.
