The Global Partnership and Programs team shapes and promotes the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill through support of partnerships; academic, co-curricular, and cultural programs; communications, events, and exhibitions. The office works with units across campus to establish agreements with partner institutions; host and prepare incoming and outgoing international visitors and delegations; maintain the UNC Global website, social media channels and promotions; and host global events and exhibitions in the FedEx Global Education Center, on campus and worldwide. Global Partnership and Programs is also a resource for UNC units on international relations and protocol.
