Relationships & Partners

The world's most challenging problems demand collaboration

Michigan State University is full of passionate people who are looking to address the today's biggest challenges through world-class teaching, research and scholarship—innovators and experts who are dedicating their knowledge and resources to make the world a better place. But none of them can do it alone.

MSU is creating a global network of unique partnerships that connects faculty, students, universities, government agencies, non-governmental organizations, foundations, and industry partners across countries, projects, and multi-continent consortiums.

International Agreements Database

MSU is committed to building a global network by working side-by-side with our partners. We have more than 325 partnership agreements in over 80 countries.

Drafting Guidance

In many cases, an MOU is not required. However, if you or your unit would like to formalize a partnership with an MOU/MOA, International Studies and Programs can help you with the process.

Approval Process

The ISP dean's office must review all institutional-level international agreements. We'll work with General Counsel and Contract and Grant Administration for final review.

Please allow a minimum of 12 business days for approval of new MOUs.

Renewal Process

The MOU review and renewal process may take up to 10 business days.
