Vanderbilt's International Partners

The 2013-2014 Academic Strategic Plan highlighted global initiatives as one of the cross-theme threads – critically important topics that cut across all aspects of the university and each of the strategic plan themes.  Over the coming year, Vanderbilt will review and evaluate how best to ensure that its international partnerships align with the goals of the strategic plan.

Among the many international institutions with which Vanderbilt has built strong relationships, the following partners have been particularly important over the past decade:

understanding (MOU) with an international partner, please contact Global Support Services
