Step 8: Review and Renewal

To renew an agreement at the end of its term, the faculty champion must submit a new International Collaboration Worksheet. Any changes or new developments in the collaboration must be noted on the Worksheet. The process for renewal follows the same procedure as that for establishing a new agreement.

After demonstrated success and sustainability of the international program site, the faculty champion will be required to submit a strategic plan for the site to the Office of Global Health. The Office of Global Health will contact the faculty champion with the necessary templates to be used for development of the strategic plan.
