  1. If you have an international connection and would like to propose a new Partnership please complete the process as follows:    Faculty member or academic unit identifies a possible partnership. Initial contact is made with the potential partner to determine
    • level of interest,
    • the appropriate contact(s),
    • high-level plan of the possible partnership.
  2. If there is interest from both parties, the Faculty informs Global Learning and Engagement (Fredericton) or the Student Abroad Office (Saint John - exchange agreements only) of the opportunity.
  3. The Faculty completes a "Request for New Agreement Form" to assist in assessing the overall feasibility and benefit of the proposed Agreement for the Faculty and other UNB units that would be affected.
  4. Completed form is returned to Global Learning and Engagement (Fredericton) or the Student Abroad Office (Saint John - exchange agreements only) who will seek feedback from any parties (at UNBF or UNBSJ) who would be impacted. Budget analysts may also be consulted.
  5. If the Agreement is to proceed, Global Learning and Engagement (Fredericton) or the Student Abroad Office [1](Saint John - exchange agreements only) provides a template document and/or works with the Faculty to develop a draft Agreement which is distributed to all stakeholders for feedback.
  6. If acceptable, the draft it is taken to the Assistant Vice-President Academic (Fredericton) or the UNBSJ Student Abroad Committee (exchange agreements only) along with a summary of the results from the "Request for New Agreement Form", a list of all the UNBF/UNBSJ units affected by the agreement, and the Global Learning and Engagement (Fredericton) or the Student Abroad Office (Saint John - exchange agreements only) recommendation.
  7. After the signature is received, the Global Learning and Engagement (Fredericton) or the Student Abroad Office (Saint John - exchange agreements only) sends the Agreement to the partner institution for their sign-off. Once all parties have signed, Global Learning and Engagement (Fredericton) or the Student Abroad Office (Saint John - exchange agreements only) will keep a copy of the Agreement on behalf of UNB and distribute copies to the main parties of the agreement.
  8. Global Learning and Engagement (Fredericton) or the Student Abroad Office (Saint John - exchange agreements only) will communicate with the main UNB Agreement partner before the Agreement expires to assess the overall success of the partnership and the particulars of the Agreement and consult UNBF/UNBSJ stakeholders to determine whether the Agreement should be renewed or terminated.
