June 4, 2018  MOU signing - Dean Nathan Murata of COE and President Kyung-Sung Kim of Seoul National University of Education

The College of Education's (COE) International and Special Programs unit at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa develops and maintains sustainable and synergistic international exchanges and partnerships in higher education with institutions from other parts of the world. COE's international collaboration focuses on the exchange of faculty and students, sharing academic resources, and conducting joint projects of mutual interest and benefit.

By the end of 2018, the College has formal memoranda of understanding and/or agreements (MOU/MOA) with 25 international partners in the Asia-Pacific and Europe, with varying levels of activity. Currently the College engages in active partnerships with institutions in China, Japan, South Korea, and Switzerland. For 2019-2020 and the near future, COE plans to deepen its existing partnerships and take advantage of agreements already in place.

The list below reflects only formal agreements administered through the International and Special Programs unit within the College. (The list does not include existing degree-program delivery agreements COE has with entities in the Pacific basin. For more information on these partnerships, please inquire with the American Samoa TTTAP program and the PACMED program).
