Step One: Completion of the Feasibility Report for New Partnership Agreement
For faculty and staff beginning the process of considering an international partnership agreement, USF World recommends colleagues initiate department/college level discussions regarding a potential inter-institutional relationship. Department Chairs and Deans will need to sign the Feasibility Report so that proposers have confidence their initiative will be supported. It is critical that the proposing faculty and staff are familiar with the institutions they are considering working with.
The questions on the Feasibility Report are designed to assist faculty and staff consider whether these institutions represent viable colleagues and to ensure USF faculty are confident about this potential opportunity? Consideration also needs to be given to the estimated annual resources required to successfully implement this agreement and to what type of support funds will be needed (E&G, Foundation, tuition waivers, etc.).
Once complete, send the original Feasibility Report to: Adriana Morales, Assistant Director for Global Affairs, 4202 East Fowler Ave, CGS 101, and Tampa, FL 33620.
The report will be promptly reviewed and approved by USF World. Download Feasibility Report>>
USF Health faculty and staff interested in signing an international agreement should contact USF Health International.
USFSP and USFSM faculty and staff interested in signing an international agreement should contact USFSP Global Initiatives and USFSM Global Engagement Office, to start the conversation. This will ensure that each institutional campus will be aware of your plans. Wendy Baker (USFSP) and Amela Malkic (USFSM) will then liaise with USF World.
