International Relations Office

The worth and importance of the Institution is not to be estimated by what it accumulates within the walls of its building, but by what it sends forth to the world.

Joseph Henry, first Secretary of the Smithsonian(1850)

The International Relations Office (IRO) was set up to facilitate existing external relations and to develop new partners for collaboration around the world. This office actively seeks to foster relations on an international platform that will favorably serve the quality of teaching and studying at SDU. Presently, the University has signed active Memoranda of Understanding with approximately 33 global higher education institutions to promote mutual interests.
