Approved by Executive Council on December 1, 2009
The Director of International Education will coordinate the establishment, negotiation, evaluation, and maintenance of ad hoc International Agreements at SUNY Plattsburgh for the Office of the Provost. All existing agreements over four years old should be reaffirmed, starting at step 3 of this process, by September 1, 2010. Thereafter, agreements must be reaffirmed at least every five years.
The first step will be a preliminary evaluation to determine whether or not a proposal or concept for an international agreement has merit for development and the appropriate format for such an agreement. Conducting a preliminary assessment will minimize the loss of staff time, reduce institutional impacts of rejection if a concept is not considered feasible, and ensure that the appropriate format for a particular agreement is used.
The first step will be preliminary review of an ad hoc proposal to clarify what type of agreement is being proposed and whether or not such an agreement is appropriate. Appendix A presents a short form to be used to identify the distinct components of a proposal and help make a preliminary assessment. The Director of International Education (DIE) will evaluate the proposal and make a recommendation to the Provost. The Provost will decide whether or not such an international agreement is appropriate for negotiation.

If a concept is approved, the next step will be negotiating an agreement. The Director of International Education will negotiate all agreements to ensure that SUNY standards and policies are fulfilled.
The third step will be a detailed review of the draft agreement. Appendix B presents a short form to be used to guide the assessment of international agreements. If the agreement involves the admission of International Students, it will be independently reviewed by International Student Services. The DIE and Provost will review the draft agreement and related assessments and the Provost will make a recommendation to the President. If the recommendation is positive, SUNY legal staff will review the agreement to ensure that legal issues are addressed. The President makes the final decision on an agreement.
