IU signs agreement with University of São Paulo

Earlier today, President McRobbie signed an agreement with University of São Paulo (USP) to establish ties of cooperation and friendship. USP and IU have previously exchanged faculty and students in several areas of music, and IU’s Kelley School of Business is in the process of finalizing a faculty exchange agreement with USP’s Faculty of Economics and Administration.

The agreement signals the start of a formal partnership that will significantly expand student and faculty exchange opportunities between USP and IU. Prior to the signing ceremony, McRobbie met with Dr. Adnei Melges de Andrade, Executive Vice Rector for International Relations, to talk about other areas of potential collaboration. IU and USP will continue to discuss an exchange agreement that would be open to selected faculty and students across the IU system.

This renewed relationship with USP, elevated to a university-to-university partnership, will significantly expand options for the IU academic community in Brazil. USP, consistently ranked among the top universities in Latin America and considered the most prestigious university in Brazil, will open access to high-caliber collaborative research possibilities and high-quality learning experiences.
