Did You Know: CWRU’s international partnerships

Each November, Case Western Reserve University and institutions around the country celebrate International Education Week in recognition of international education and global exchange. This year, events were held on campus Nov. 12-16 for International Education Week. Throughout November, we will highlight statistics related to internationalization at Case Western Reserve to mark the celebration.

Case Western Reserve University partners with a number of international institutions to enrich its academic offerings and to serve as a truly global university. Through more than 200 agreements in over 40 countries—including Peru, Egypt, Turkey and China—CWRU fosters research partnerships as well as study abroad, exchange and degree programs.

Three of the university’s major international partnerships are:

  • A collaboration with Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein in São Paulo, Brazil, on Down syndrome, HIV and Crohn’s disease research;
  • A relationship with Taipei Medical University in Taipei, Taiwan, that includes dual master’s programs and a translational collaborative pilot program for medical research; and
  • A research and exchange collaboration with Tohoku University in Sendai, Japan, that supports an annual symposium on data and life science.

CWRU also recently celebrated the 30th anniversary of its partnership with Uganda regarding HIV/AIDS research. The international collaboration has received more than $185 million in funding, and over 150 CWRU alumni are currently working in Uganda.
