Agreements of Cooperation

Global Affairs Partnerships

Fostering Mutually-Beneficial Partnerships

The University of California, 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 across more than 45 countries. Most of these agreements are at the initiative of faculty members.

Agreements of Cooperation refers to a general agreement to collaborate or cooperate and apply to the whole campus. An Agreement of Cooperation should be supplemented by a Working Agreement signed by the college or school dean or a designate within the department or unit who is responsible for ensuring any resource commitment is available as outlined within the text of the Working Agreement.

For information on how to establish an international partnership with UC Davis, see Guidelines for Agreements of Cooperation.
