3.01.1—Developing International Framework and Subordinate Agreements

Introduction

There are four steps to developing an international agreement for education, scholarship, and/or research, whether it is a framework agreement or any subordinate agreements under the framework agreement:

  1. Consult with the CIE.
  2. Determine who will write a draft agreement.
  3. Route final draft for review and approval by CIE.
  4. Approval of agreement.

Any agreement involving study for academic credit must be signed by the executive director of CIE. Any agreement involving research must be signed by the vice president for research.

Process for Framework Agreements

  1. Consult with the CIE, by calling 7-2160, about a draft framework agreement. Example agreements are available from the CIE office.
  2. Determine if the department or CIE will draft the agreement.
  3. If the department drafts the agreement, route two (2) copies of the agreement to the executive director of CIE for review and to initial or sign as appropriate.
  4. Once reviewed and approved, CIE forwards both copies of the agreement to the provost and senior vice president for academic and student affairs and to the president for signature on each copy.
  5. Once signed by the provost and president, the agreements will be returned to CIE. CIE forwards both copies to the foreign university/organization for signature. The foreign university/organization signs both copies and returns one copy to CIE.

Process for Subordinate Agreements

  1. Consult with the CIE, by calling 7-2160, to draft a subordinate agreement. Example agreements are available from the CIE office.
  2. Determine if the department or CIE will draft the agreement.
  3. If the department drafts the agreement, route two (2) copies of the agreement to the executive director of CIE for review and to initial or sign as appropriate.
  4. Once reviewed and approved, CIE:

    1. obtains the appropriate department chair/dean/director signature on each copy as necessary;
    2. forwards both copies of the agreement to the provost and senior vice president for academic and student affairs for signature on each copy.

Once signed by the provost and president, the agreements will be returned to CIE. CIE forwards both copies to the foreign university/organization for signature. The foreign university/organization signs both copies and returns one copy to CIE.
