Current content categories in the Global Register include:


  • Agreements and memorandums of understanding (MOU)

  • Unit activities
  • Faculty degrees earned abroad
  • International media
  • Externally funded international research
  • Faculty international expertise and activities
  • Jointly taught and globally networked courses

Future categories will include international corporate collaborations, international student numbers by country, international student organizations, study abroad programs, visiting international scholars and international alumni organizations.  Faculty wishing to share their expertise can do so through the Register.

More information on the Global Register’s development can be found at the Mason Newsdesk.
