Once both parties have confirmed the agreement details, it is recommended that the agreement go to the Faculty Council for approval. As with other agreements, a letter of support from the Dean (or designate in the Dean’s office) will be required, outlining the rationale for the agreement.
After receiving the letter of support, UAI will request approval and signatures from the Provost and Vice-President (Academic). The signing authority at UAlberta rests with the Provost, but Faculty Deans and Department Chairs may be listed as signatories as well, under the Provost and Vice-President (Academic).
UAI and the partner institution each retain one original copy of the signed agreement. Individual Faculties and Departments are welcome to make copies of the agreement, or may request that additional original copies be signed.
