Institutional Agreements

Create or Renew International Agreements

STEP 1:  Agreement Guidelines


In general, please keep in mind the following criteria when building and negotiating your agreement. To evaluate the potential benefit for UW and the partner institution, please consider:
  • Congruence with the academic, research, service priorities, and plans of the UW as well as the Department and College proposing the agreement;
  • Congruence with UW’s or a College's mission;
  • Anticipated benefits to students, faculty, and staff;
  • Evidence of institutional quality including, reputation, international ranking, and accreditation status;
  • Cost, feasibility, and sustainability of proposed activities;
  • Possible risks to students, faculty, and staff (including, but not limited to, legal and financial risks, threats to safety and security, reputation, etc.); and
  • Existence of current partnership that effectively serves the above considerations.  Please check the Partnership Database below before requesting new partnerships.


STEP 2:  Submit an International Partnership Proposal Form


  • Complete and submit, to,  the the International Agreement Request Form available here.
  • Please complete the form with the most detail you can. For example, please enter the complete contact information for the partner university contact person. If you have any questions with the form, please contact


STEP 3: Generation & Review of Initial Draft


     After our office receives the International Agreement Request Form we will either
  • provide you with an appropriate draft of the agreement or
  • request a meeting to discuss further.

STEP 4: Internal Review & Partner Review


  • Once you have approved the initial draft and returned it to this office, we will circulate it for internal review at UW by the appropriate offices.
  • After we have received the relevant approvals (the process will take at least two weeks), we will then email you with permission to share the agreement with the partner institution for their review or communicate directly with the proposed partner if that is your preference.


STEP 5: Partner Review


  • The agreement will then be reviewed and returned by the partner institution to UW.
  • After making the requested changes, and if there are no substantive changes, the agreement is ready for signature. At this point, our office circulates the agreement to collect signatures of the designated institutional representatives for UW, usually President or Provost.


STEP 6: Archiving the Agreements


  • After all relevant signatures are collected, the appropriate number of agreements are held at both UW and the partner institution.
  • You will receive an electronic copy for your records.
  • The agreement is now fully executed and the parties may proceed under the agreement.
  • At this point, the agreement is also entered into the Agreement Database found below.
