Our university, located in Kansas, USA, would like to develop partnerships with universities in Central and South America. The purpose of the partnerships is to create opportunities for more students to learn about and study at our university in the the USA.
Understand the educational environment in the region. Be friendly, helpful, and follow-up quickly to responses from potential university partners. Enjoy developing relationship.
Work to be done:
Identify suitable partner schools and initiate the contact. After finding universities interested in developing a partnership, setup an introduction and then allow our administration to work directly with the partner university administration to work out the details of the partnership.
Successful Engagement with Freelancer:
Great Communication with our university administration and follow-up is essential.
Successful Partnership with Universities:
Our university would like to find partner schools that are a good match. Sometimes finding the right partner with the same interests can be a long process.
We are able to pay $2,000 USD after we have successfully signed an agreement with the partner university. Identifying a suitable partner will not necessarily lead to an agreement being signed. Sometimes this process can take many months before an agreement is signed. It is important to understand that the process will most likely be slow.
Why Freelancer might be interested in job:
This is an opportunity to create an international university partnership. Although universities tend to move slowly, making the work challenging, developing relationships with among different cultures can be exciting.
Types of partnerships we are interested in:
2+2 - Students spend 2 years at home university, and then 2 years at our university in the USA.
4+0 - Students spend all 4 years at home university, but we send our faculty to the partner school to teach. Students still take classes from both university, but there is no need to travel to the USA.
Short-term programs - Students can come to our campus in the USA for a couple weeks during the winter or summer breaks.
