The University’s research, teaching, and outreach mission is increasingly international. Global Operations aims to increase access to information for University faculty and staff undertaking research or other projects abroad. The initiative brings together experts in the areas of tax, purchasing, legal, human resources, and compliance to assess issues, provide advice, and reduce internal infrastructure barriers. Global Operations will, as needed, seek outside counsel provided by High Street Partners, an international business service firm focused on the unique circumstances of higher education.
Why should I consult with Global Operations?
Considerable planning and organization are required to set up and maintain operations and projects around the world. This often involves unfamiliar laws, regulations, taxes, and more. For activities ranging from large degree-granting programs to small activities with in-country hiring, purchasing, or other operational requirements, there are many considerations in order to ensure a successful program. (See list of past projects Global Operations has supported.)
When should I contact Global Operations?
It's best to contact Global Operations as early in your planning process as possible.
Let the Global Operations team focus on your cross-border compliance requirements, so you can focus on your academic activities. We're here to help and looking forward to doing so.
