Office of Global Engagement

Establishing Partnerships

The Office of Global Engagement (OGE) is the central institutional facilitator and coordinator for the development of global partnerships and, as such, has established protocols and procedures for the review of the establishment of new and renewal agreements. 

To establish a new or renew an existing partnership, please download the Guidelines to Establish an International Partnership under "Related Files." 

Please note that the overall review process will take several weeks or months from proposal submission to finalization of the document, depending on the complexity of the agreement and number of other offices involved in the review.  This timeline includes the review of the agreement by the international partner institution. Many Brown internal offices involved often have lengthy queues, so please plan this in your timeline when coordinating with international partners.  The OGE will do its best to expedite the process, but cannot guarantee turnaround times.
