Partnership Guidelines:  Faculty, administration and staff at Rutgers may initiate an international academic partnership with institutions abroad. The process of establishing such a partnership (initiating contacts, gathering information, defining areas of interests, etc.) culminates in signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with an international higher education institution.  International institutions may also use a Rutgers MoU to sign an agreement with Rutgers University. 

The five Rutgers’ MoU templates listed below may be used to establish a variety of agreements, including student and faculty exchanges and research collaboration. In case of undergraduate exchanges an individually negotiated MOU is signed. Please note that all MOUs are subject to review and should be submitted to Vice President for International and Global Affairs Joanna Regulska, This email address is being protected from spambots.
