Our Partnerships

Our Partnerships


International Programs and Services (IPS) supports the development and maintenance of various types of international and domestic partnerships. Partnerships are generally established on an institutional level.

  • Gold Pins: Domestic Partnerships
  • Maroon Pins: International Partnerships
  • Navy Pins: Study Abroad Programs


Many of our partnerships develop from faculty relationships.

Then more formal partnerships develop, encompassing a wide range of activities, such as: 

  • Student and faculty mobility
  • Dual degree programs
  • Joint research
  • Scholarship opportunities

International Programs and Services (IPS) is interested in working with faculty, staff, departments, and collegiate units to help develop partnerships. 

In all cases, partnerships require University resources beyond faculty or staff time. If you are interested in developing a partnership, please consult IPS staff for guidance and support.

Partnership Agreement Template Examples

To ensure compliance with University policies and procedures, IPS works directly with the University of Minnesota System Office of the General Counsel (OGC) on all partnership agreement templates. Examples of these templates include:

  1. Memorandum of understanding
  2. One-way sending agreement
  3. One-way receiving agreement (i.e. incoming students)
  4. Student exchange
  5. Student & faculty exchange
  6. Joint Research

The above templates are intended as guidelines and can be altered with approval from the OGC. Details outlining the terms of the agreement can either be embedded in the document or subsequently added as an addendum to the agreement. IPS staff will facilitate all necessary engagement with partner institutions and OGC staff.
