Types of Collaborations

There are many kinds of collaborations between Penn State and international counterparts. Some require formal agreements, while others do not. The following is a brief overview of the more common types of collaborations, with links to more detailed explanations.

Higher Education Capacity Building

Collaborations with international institutions that include special training programs for non-Penn State faculty or other capacity-building projects will require the approval of a number of different Penn State offices, including General Counsel. Since each capacity-building program is likely to be unique, the first point of contact should be Global Programs.
