With the goal of internationalizing Ohio State's comprehensive range of activities in research, education, and outreach, the Office of International Affairs (OIA) partners with Ohio State academic units to develop and manage a wide array of international collaborations, from general Memoranda of Understanding to more specific joint efforts, which are formalized as Memoranda of Agreement, Student Exchange Agreements and collaborative degree programs. We encourage you to explore the motivation, policies, and practices associated with collaborative agreements by reviewing these guidelines and instructions to help you develop an effective new or revised partnership agreement.
If you decide to pursue an institutional agreement for the benefit of your academic unit and college, you should find this section of our website to be a good guide. In addition, we strongly suggest that you schedule an appointment with OIA's partnership specialist Joanna Kukielka-Blaser ( or 614-292-9999) to discuss the best way to achieve your objectives and adhere to university guidelines and procedures.
