Global Connections Database

Our new UC Davis Global Connections Database brings together institutional partnerships and faculty global connections, and will soon incorporate visiting delegation information and other global connections.

The database is an important tool in showcasing the breadth of global linkages and partnerships and the expertise of the UC Davis community, while also enabling searches for future collaborations.


International Linkages and Agreements of Cooperation

Please note: the new Global Connections Database is meant to capture both faculty global connections and partnership information, so the former databases for International Linkages and for Agreements of Cooperation are no longer operational. Information from the former International Linkages Database did not automatically transfer to the Global Connections Database; you can add your connections and linkages to the new database using this online form. Please contact Karen Beardsley, director of global professional programs in Global Affairs, at with any questions.

UC Davis International Partnerships

In fostering mutually-beneficial partnerships, UC Davis is actively engaged in partnering with peer universities, research institutions, and government agencies across the globe in order to facilitate a wide variety of intellectual interactions and exchanges. We currently have over 150 active general and specific working agreements (memoranda of understanding) with international partner institutions spanning 45 countries.

Global Centers

UC Davis Global Affairs is committed to strengthening and enhancing the university’s international research, education and engagement efforts globally. Our Global Centers initiative was developed with input from faculty and administrators across campus to:

  • address the challenges facing humankind through collaborative international research and developmental efforts that leverage UC Davis strengths, including in areas related to the UN Sustainable Development Goals
  • support region-specific strategies that leverage existing and emerging international partnerships and collaborations;
  • engage the UC Davis community, including students, faculty, staff, alumni and supporters beyond the boundaries of the university; and
  • expand the international collaborations and partnerships of UC Davis in alignment with the university’s mission and strategic goals, while increasing the visibility and reputation of the university.
