International agreements can be used to extend MU’s global reach and reputation. Agreements with universities, government agencies and nongovernmental organizations located in other countries are used to facilitate a range of international activities. These agreements provide important tangible benefits, such as revenues for services rendered, access to research facilities, data or funding, student and faculty exchange. However, since countries have different legal systems and different standards and expectations in higher education, international agreements can sometimes introduce unanticipated liabilities and obligations.

Agreements may also introduce distributed costs, duplication of effort or other inefficiencies that offset expected benefits. MU must estimate the potential benefits and costs of these agreements, and manage these flows to maximize our return on investment in international initiatives. To that end, the university has a mandatory review and approval process for international agreements.
