Types of Agreements

UNMC believes international agreements should build on the academic standing of the two collaborating universities. The collaboration should enhance each institution’s competitive advantage in the discipline as well as their international standing while nurturing outstanding research that leads faculty and students to rigorous scholarly and professional training in an international setting.

The types of international agreements that UNMC enters into include, but are not limited to:

Memorandum of Understanding (MOU)

MOU declares an intent to explore opportunities to collaborate in areas that would be mutually beneficial to each institution. MOUs may lead to more specific activities and goals, which could then be expressed in the form of a MOA.

Memorandum of Agreement (MOA)

MOA provides a strategic advantage to UNMC as umbrella agreements for concrete and specific activities of importance.

Student Exchange Agreement (SEA)

Student exchanges are recognized as a valuable opportunity for making the educational experience truly international by enrolling UNMC students in programs abroad and in return enabling their international counterparts to attend UNMC and benefit from our programs, while at the same time bringing international diversity to our student body.
