No. International collaboration is an important aspect of faculty and student life at Johns Hopkins. There are many options to pursue international collaborations at UF via university-to-university agreements, research sponsorship agreements, visitor and student exchange, etc. There is a significant difference, however, between academic collaborations among researchers at different institutions and entering into personal contracts and agreements with institutions other than your home university. It is the latter type of arrangement that must be disclosed and approved prior to beginning the activity.
