Signatory Authority

International agreements must be reviewed by the Center for Global Health and approved and signed by the University Provost or President. Since international agreements are not between individual faculty members, but between institutions, only a small, designated number of individuals at the University have authority to sign agreements on behalf of the University. Agreements should not be signed on behalf of MUSC outside of the U.S. unless advised otherwise by the Office of General Counsel, as signing agreements in another country may constitute doing business in that country.
