    Joint degrees, dual degrees, and international research collaborations hold out exciting opportunities for North American universities, but they also present many challenges and questions. This publication reviews what is currently known about graduate international collaborations, what the current gaps in our understanding are, and what areas call for greater clarification. Includes findings from a CGS NSF-funded project, problem-solving scenarios, information about print and online resources, and a checklist for Memoranda of Understanding.
