Global Partnerships Start Here
Drake University strives to create strategic partnerships with the potential to be transformative for both (or all) partners as they collaborate. Global Engagement facilitates the process of developing and assessing new global partnerships. We also manage the agreements governing these formal relationships, ensuring coordination with all concerned units across campus.
Impactful & Interdisciplinary
Committed & Sustainable
Consult your academic/administrative unit head
Make sure your proposed collaboration aligns with your unit’s Continuous Improvement Plan and discuss whether unit resources are available to support the activity.
Contact the Global Partnerships team
We maintain records of all existing agreements and may be able to advise on planned collaboration elsewhere on campus that is relevant to your proposal.
Draft new agreement
The Global Partnerships team can help you get started and ensure coordination with legal counsel and others at Drake.
Once the draft agreement is approved by Drake, it may be forwarded to the partner institution(s) for their review. Further negotiation may be needed to achieve consensus on a final agreement.
Two originals are signed by all parties. One is kept by Drake Global Engagement, and the other is kept by the partner institution for their records.
