UM International Agreements

"Canadian universities are uniquely positioned to make a valuable contribution to enhancing Canada's role and influence in the world through knowledge partnerships, while at the same time providing a window on the world for Canadians."—Achieving Excellence in and for the World: Knowledge Partnerships as Building Blocks of Canada's International Relations, AUCC Brief to the House of Commons Oct., 2005.

Through cooperation and partnership we expand our capacity for discovery and knowledge beyond our geographic and cultural boundaries.  Knowledge partnerships are a medium for growth at the University of Manitoba that increases our influence at home and abroad and brings direct benefit for both faculty members and students.

We want to develop institutional partners around the world that bring strategic benefits to both the University of Manitoba and our partners abroad.  As University of Manitoba faculty members identify the potential for a new mutually beneficial institutional partnership, we would encourage them to contact the Office of International Relations to receive advice and assistance in establishing a good foundation for cooperation.
