Agreements with Non-Academic Entities


The following is the process for developing agreements with non-academic entities that support non-credit-bearing activities:

  • Review:  The College should submit an information sheet and the proposed agreement to the Assistant Provost for International Partnerships for the Provost’s review and approval.  The Provost has assigned responsibility for this review to the Associate Provost for International Programs.
  • Legal Review:  If necessary, the Assistant Provost for International Partnerships will submit the proposed agreement to UK Legal Counsel for review and approval. 
  • Execution of the Agreement:  The agreement must be signed by the Associate Provost for International Programs and by an authorized institutional representative of the partner institution.  UK may have additional signatories, but none can substitute for the Associate Provost for International Programs.  The agreement may be signed in person or via the electronic or physical exchange of documents.
  • Archives:  Two fully executed copies remain with the partner institution.  Two copies are held by UK, one by the Assistant Provost for International Partnerships and one by the cognizant dean. 
  • Domestic Agreements:  Responsibility for initiating and for periodically reviewing domestic agreements with non-academic entities that support non-credit-bearing activities rests with the College Dean.  The Associate Provost for International Programs does not sign or review such agreements.
