Contracts (MOA’s)

There are 2 types of contracts that your program may need, Service Purchase Contracts, and Memorandum of Agreement.

Faculty members at West Chester University who are interested in establishing international teaching and research collaborations, faculty/scholar exchanges, or bilateral student exchanges with their colleagues overseas can initiate an International Memorandum of Agreement (IMOA). An IMOA is a binding, legal contract formalizing the terms of collaboration between WCU and one or more partner institutions. An IMOA should outline a constructive new opportunity that reflects an institutional priority for all institutions involved.

To begin the process, complete the MOA Planning Form

Once received and approved, CIP will work with the faculty member to creat a Unilateral or Bilateral exchange agreement.

Faculty members will be responsible for adding all content, specifically in articles 2 through 6, with the assistance of the Center for International Programs, will adapt and add an addendum to create the final version for approved.
