The challenges facing humanity today are daunting. They require diverse perspectives and global partnerships to address them.

Washington University’s partnerships around the world facilitate collaborative research, scholarship, teaching and educational activities, and clinical trials. Varied in their scope and focus, our established and emerging institutional relationships are intentional and aligned with our global strategy. They enable WashU to create positive impact in our home community of St. Louis and around the world.

WashU Global tracks international partnerships and provides guidance to the WashU community to help advance sustainable, mutually beneficial partnerships with international peer institutions.
