Kent State University enjoys a successful history of international academic collaboration through the creation of formal partnerships with like-minded institutions. Our current partnerships include universities, institutions of higher learning, secondary schools, governmental and non-governmental agencies, and private sector companies. Partnerships enable Kent State to collaborate across several areas of mutual interest, such as joint research projects and student exchange programs. Experience has shown us that the most successful and active partnerships are the result of committed faculty members from each institution who champion and coordinate the relationship among their respective peers and students.
The mission of Kent State’s Office of Global Education is to assist in creating the foundation upon which a mutually beneficial partnership can be built, including the development of any necessary documentation such as a Memorandum of Agreement or appropriate contracts or agreements.
