Global Affiliations: Database and Maps

In the past twenty years, AUI has worked to develop a range of affiliations around the world in order to support its mission. Some of the most productive of these affiliations originated from memberships to higher education institution networks that value global orientation. Traditional affiliations, or partnerships, are formalized through jointly signed Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) or agreements for collaboration and cooperation between institutions based on intent. The various avenues through which AUI interacts with other institutions provide a network of solid, working affiliations for students, faculty, and staff at the University.

The following database represents all institutions that have a connection to AUI, either through a shared membership, such as the Global Liberal Arts Alliance, through a signed MoUs, or through specific agreements detailing the exchange of students.

Four maps have been developed from the database of affiliated institutions to illustrate AUI’s worldwide connections.

These maps are useful mediums through which students can view the collective possibilities for study abroad experiences around the globe. Not every institution indicated is available and many of the exchange programs are negotiated each year based on an equal exchange of students coming and going from each institution.  Other study abroad programs are open to all qualified students.  For more information, contact a study abroad advisor in the Office of International Programs: This email address is being protected from spambots.

Faculty members are encouraged to maintain and reestablish their existing connections with colleagues around the world. They are also encouraged to develop new working and information sharing relationships with other faculty members around the world either directly or through networks or memberships in academic or professional associations. Any real plan to cooperate and collaborate on a project requiring university resources should be discussed with your Dean. A MoU should only be considered to support and facilitate activities and not just the intent.
