Define a purpose

Determine the purpose and the details of the agreement you wish to establish. For example, with which institution do you wish to partner? What kind of partnership would you like (i.e. student exchange, resource sharing, visiting faculty, etc.)? How long should the agreement last? Should the agreement apply to a single department or include the entire Division, School, or University? Having answers to such questions not only makes the process of writing an MOU quicker, it also helps determine if an MOU that fits your specifications already exists.
