Global University: Dual/Joint Degree Working Group


University of Wisconsin – Madison


Requests for dual/joint degree programs have increased over the past few years, as they represent an important dimension of inter-institutional collaborations worldwide. As some of you have experienced, however, dual or joint degree programs remain difficult if not impossible to set up while certain options exist that we may not know about. I believe it has become urgent for UW-Madison to determine how strategic dual/joint degrees are for our global partnerships, clarify what is currently doable, and examine what new possibilities will need to be explored in keeping up with a very competitive global higher education marketplace.

With the endorsement of Provost DeLuca, I am pleased to convene this group to examine the issue of dual/joint depress in an institutional and global context, consider opportunities and challenges, and make some recommendations as to how to best position UW-Madison regarding cross-border dual/joint degrees in a fast-changing global collaboration landscape. Your work will have an impact campus-wide and beyond.
