Virtual Global Exchange


International partnerships are the keystone of courses that feature a virtual global exchange. Faculty may identify their international partners in one of three ways:

Pre-Existing Professional Relationships

Faculty who have a pre-existing relationship with a faculty member at an international institution and who would like to develop a shared course experience with that faculty partner are encouraged to do so. Having a pre-existing relationship can make the course development process easier and ties between campuses stronger.

Facilitated Partnering with USF’s International Partner Universities

USF has a strong network of existing international partner universities around the world. The Global Discovery Hub is the first place to start exploring existing partnerships. The USF VGE Coordinator can help facilitate possible partnerships between USF faculty and faculty at one of the global partner network universities.
