Form or Leverage an International Partnership
The University of Wisconsin - Whitewater partners with institutions of higher education and other organizations around the world to facilitate international opportunities for members of the UW-Whitewater community, such as faculty and student exchanges, study abroad programs, collaborative research and academic projects, economic development projects, and other international activities.

Partnership agreements require an institutional commitment of resources - both human and financial - to maintain. With global partnerships increasingly common, it is important that all parties involved take the time to adequately assess the feasibility of a long-standing partnership from the standpoint of strategic potential, institutional fit; available logistical support (e.g. in the case of student exchanges, on-campus housing and other student services); financial commitment (e.g. institutional responsibilities for faculty salaries and expenses in a faculty exchange agreement); and institutional commitment, support, and motivation.

If a member of the UW-Whitewater community believes that he/she knows of a partnership opportunity that would contribute to university goals, please contact the director of the Office for Global Experiences, to begin the process.
