International Partnerships

Conducting research in Latin America or Iberia, participating in faculty exchange programs, or sending students to study abroad often requires the establishment of formal agreements between UNM and counterpart institutions abroad. The Global Education Office at UNM is the repository of all international agreements, and maintains a database of existing agreements at https://studyabroad.unm.edu/institutional-partnerships.  Faculty seeking to carry out an activity in collaboration with an institution in Latin America or Iberia should consult that database to determine whether the needed agreement is in place.  If UNM does not already have the agreement needed for a particular research and teaching activity, or if there is doubt about the applicability of an existing agreement, LAII stands ready to help faculty in negotiating and formalizing whatever is needed. LAII has decades of experience in developing international agreements in English, Spanish, and Portuguese.
