Penn State and The University of Auckland agreed in the summer of 2018 to pursue a strategic partnership. The universities are working toward a formal agreement focusing on shared strategic goals and research and teaching opportunities. More specific engagement opportunities are currently under development with a target starting date in the 4th quarter of 2019.
Penn State and the University of Auckland will be conducting an academic workshop in mid-November 2019. The workshop will provide an opportunity for academics from both universities to come together to develop cross-university collaborative ideas for joint research proposals. In addition, both universities are establishing a Collaboration Development Fund supporting a limited number of joint projects. It is expected that the two universities will release a Request for Proposals (RFP) at the beginning of December 2019.
The partnership is in the beginning stages. As information is gathered regarding faculty engagement, new activities will arise.
