Clark University has relationships with many different institutions outside of the United States. The Office of International Programs assists Clark faculty and staff who are interested in setting up agreements with an international entity.
All international agreements must be signed by the provost or his/her designee. If you are interested in developing a new international partnership, please contact the associate dean for international programs, who can provide an overview of the process and answer any questions you might have.
To view all of the active agreements Clark currently has or to propose a new program, please visit Clark’s International Agreements portal.
The International Students and Scholars Office (ISSO) works with Clark departments to facilitate the immigration process for international faculty, researchers and visiting scholars. Departments are responsible for facilitating the immigration sponsorship process for new hires and research appointments. Please contact the ISSO as quickly as possible to ensure a smooth visa process for your new department member.
The ISSO also advises on payments and honoraria to international guests for lectures or other services provided to the University.
Contact ISSO Director Susannah Marcucci with any immigration questions about hiring an international faculty member or researcher or inviting a short-term visitor.
Payments to International Guests
The ISSO assists departments in understanding the immigration regulations relating to travel reimbursement, payments, and honoraria to international guests for lectures or other services provided to the University.
If your guest is not a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, contact Susannah Marcucci to determine whether the international visitor is lawfully permitted to accept a payment from the University. You will be asked to provide the visitor’s immigration documents in order to assist the ISSO in making a determination.
Please note that the ISSO cannot advise on taxation of payments made to guests. Please contact Accounts Payable for all taxation questions.
