IRD assists in identifying and/or coordinating international project proposals with faculty and staff. It establishes contacts and conducts fact finding activities with foreign universities that result in capacity building projects or teaching exchanges.  It facilitates the engagement of faculty in exciting international capacity building projects and research activities with foreign universities and governments. The staff monitors or assists in coordinating collaborative international projects to be implemented by faculty and staff. It networks with professional international consortia, organizations and government agencies for grants to support FAMU internationalization. IRD has responsibility of developing and maintaining all international Memoranda of Agreements (MOAs) and is the official custodian of MOAs approved by FAMU with entities abroad.
In addition, we create collaborative relationships with foreign institutions to foster two plus two agreements for enrollment of undergraduate students, as well as, admissions to masters and doctoral programs. Previous FAMU international capacity building projects were implemented in Brazil, Belize, Cameroon, China, Colombia, Egypt, Ghana, Haiti, Jamaica, Kenya, Liberia, Malawi, Peru, Russia, Somalia, Morocco, and South Africa.
