From regions as diverse as the Middle East, Asia, and Latin America, the university’s Office of International Affairs has worked with government sponsors and partner institutions to enhance existing degree programs and customize new programs in emerging fields. Find out more about developing collaborative opportunities.
A collaboration may be formalized through an agreement known as a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). The MOU is a broad agreement in which the University of Colorado Denver and an international partner express an intention to engage in cooperative academic or research activities.
Each MOU represents an outstanding opportunity for University of Colorado Denver faculty, staff, or students to expand their academic horizons through contact with international colleagues.
ICB is a joint education program between the University of Colorado Denver (CU Denver) in Denver, Colorado, USA, and China Agricultural University (CAU) in Beijing, People’s Republic of China. In 1994, this partnership was one of the first of its kind approved by the Chinese Ministry of Education. ICB is accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools in the U.S. and maintains a reputation as a challenging, robust academic program.
CU Denver is located in the heart of a thriving business and entertainment district. Students have convenient access to international companies, fine restaurants, shopping, science and history museums, and innovative art galleries. The ICB students found creative inspiration on a visit to the Spectra Art Space, hosted by the Office of International Affairs, where they particularly enjoyed the Nova Ita exhibit. In conjunction with new artists, writers, actors, and technology teams, Nova Ita is an interactive art exhibition that focuses on creative exploration and puzzle-solving. It is set in a prosperous “Post-Event” world that envisions how people are living in harmony with nature, with “magical discoveries” being made in an immersive, interactive art experience. The visit provided fuel for the students’ imaginations, expanded their critical thinking skills, and was a purely fun recreational activity to balance the time spent in diligently focusing on their academic studies.
