Using the Spitzer Space Telescope and the VLA, we present the first direct evidence that the well-known far-IR/radio correlation, and the less well correlated Mid-IR/radio correlation extend to cosmologically significant redshifts. We explore the dependence of q = logSIR/Sradio on z. The results were obtained by matching Spitzer sources at 24 and 70\mum with VLA micro-Jy radio sources for the full 4 sq. degree field of the Spitzer FLS. Spectroscopic redshifts have been obtained for ~ 500 matched IR/radio sources using WIYN, Keck and archival SDSS spectra. We find strong evidence for the universality of the far-IR/radio correlation out to z = 2.
