How to Become a Partner

The Office of Hemispheric and Global Affairs (OHGA) recognizes the importance of international partners. OHGA develops and maintains active and productive relationships in alignment to UM’s aspirations to become The Hemispheric University and The Relevant University.

If your institution does not have an official relationship with UM, you might consider approaching a UM faculty member in your field of study to initiate discussions around potential projects. Once potential activities for collaboration are outlined, a formal agreement will be required.  The UM faculty member will contact OHGA and start the process to prepare the appropriate documents.
