MOU, MOA and Affiliation Agreements


The Office of the Provost, and the Assistant to the Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor will serve as the liaison and will work with the appropriate Dean's and/or Director's office to assist with routing and finalizing each agreement.

Agreements Routed Through OGCA: More complex agreements which contemplate receiving funds and MOUs/MOAs that are not related to sponsored agreements, but academic activities should be routed to the Office of the Provost. Sometimes these agreements will include funding for the program, but still need to be reviewed by the Office of the Provost.

Agreements Routed Through Procurement: Agreements obligating funds. Sometimes these agreements will include funding for the program, but still need to be reviewed by the Office of the Provost.

The following types of MOU/MOA/Affiliation Agreements are routed through the Office of the Provost:

  • All Academic Activities-All MOU's, MOA's, and/or Affiliation Agreements with any academic activity (including practicums) and created by academic units who report to the Provost will need to be processed through the Office of the Provost. 
  • MAP/CES Outreach and Extension-MOU, MOA, and/or Affiliation Agreements concerning the activities of the Marine Advisory Program and the Cooperative Extension service.
  • Academic and Research-Requires both signatures from Provost, and the Vice Chancellor of Research
  • The University of Alaska Fairbanks is committed to providing a safe and healthy educational and work environment in which University Sponsored Off-Campus Programs and Research Activities are free from discrimination and harassment.
