EWU has established authority level definitions for three tiers of international partnerships as follows:
Tier One – Presidential and Provost-Level Approval: University-wide agreements that involve the participation of two or more colleges.
Tier Two – Dean-Level Approval: Departmental and college-level agreements – Cooperations in specific departments and fields, to include memorandums for partnerships in initial stages with intent to cooperate in the future. (Please see attached letter of intent/mou template examples.)
Tier Three – Department Chair Approval:Participation of individual faculty in research, conferences and exchange opportunities with international colleagues.
