The University of Cambridge is a global institution. These pages provide an overview of Cambridge's international activities in pursuit of its mission to contribute to society through excellence of education, learning and research.
The International Association of Research Universities (IARU)
IARU comprises 11 research-intensive universities spread throughout the globe, from the USA and South Africa, to Australia and Japan. IARU exists to facilitate joint working on key issues for the university sector, to support research that addresses pressing global challenges, and to enable international student exchange. The current Cambridge IARU senior officer is Dr Karen Kennedy. More information can be found on the IARU website.
Global Humanities is a multilateral, international initiative that grew out of Cambridge's School of Arts and Humanities, and now involves partners in Chile, China, Hong Kong, India and Lebanon. Its early work focuses on exploring approaches to global humanities, from institutional and international points of view. This will build towards a certificate in Global Humanities, joint teaching at postgraduate level, collaborative research, workshops and conferences, and faculty exchange between the partners. The coordinator for Global Humanities in the University's Strategic Partnerships Office is Hilary Perrott.
