 【News release: Public Relations Office】

     To strengthen the academic collaboration interactions with the partner schools in the United States, the Acting President, Professor Tsai, Ching-hwa, Dean of International and Cross-strait Cooperation, Dr. Kit Lam and Director of Office of Public Relations, Yu-chan Lin, represented Wenzao Ursuline University of Languages to visit the University of the West located in Los Angeles, CA., the Northwestern Polytechnic University in San Jose, the University of St. Thomas in Houston, Texas and the Ursuline College in Cleveland, Ohio from the Sept. 18th to 28th, respectively. In addition to the contracts extension, further concrete interaction methods were discussed; it is hoped that by conducting programs of exchanging scholars or students, the Taiwan-U.S.A. academic interactions can be promoted.

     The first visit started in Los Angeles. The group received warm hospitality from Stephen Morgan, the president of University of the West. Since 2010, there have been frequent collaborations between both schools; a number of exchange students of Wenzao have taken the management courses at the University, and so did the students of the West for the Mandarin Summer Camp. This semester, there are four exchange students from Wenzao: Zhuang Xiao-xian (Department of Foreign Language Instruction), Yin Wei-han (Department of English), Gao Yu-ting (Department of Applied Chinese) and Zheng Xiang-yun (Department of Translation and Interpreting). The delegation paid a visit to them and cared for their life and educational status in CA.

     The second stop was in San Jose; the Northwestern Polytechnic University is situated in Silicon Valley. Known for its science and engineering, information technology and business management, the partner school contract was signed in 2008, and professors were assigned to attend the activities for the partnership in 2011. Both schools anticipate that more cooperative interactions between the international business management, Chinese language instruction, and related trainings should be carried out. 

     The third stop was in Houston; the delegation visited the University of St. Thomas; they were welcomed by the president, Robert Ivany. Both universities are Catholic schools and since 2010, close cooperation relationships have been maintained. Apart from the programs of exchange scholars and students, the University also provides students of Wenzao with opportunities of internship. Professor Hans Stockton, in charge of international interactions, emphasized that the two students from Wenzao majoring in English performed quite well on campus; he hopes that diverse collaborations can be implemented.

     The City of Houston has seven famous medical centers and is a significant research institution of medical treatment and science. However, its department of nursing is one of the priority departments. This year the Division of Continuing Education of Wenzao opened a specific class of nursing for the 2-year college program majoring in English, and students are mostly nursing professionals. Wenzao expects that professors of this department can be invited to give instructions and that advanced theory and practical teachings can be offered to the domestic nursing professionals.

     Because of the close relationship between Houston and the political as well as the economic fields of Taiwan, the delegation visited the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Houston, under the arrangement of a retired faculty member Chang Shao-hua. Warm hospitality from the Director Huang Min-jing and the Vice Director Ci Yong-qiang was received. Director Huang said that the outstanding performance of the alumni of Wenzao impressed him a lot, and the professors and students of Wenzao are all welcome to visit Houston; if there’s any problem, the Economic and Cultural Office will offer assistances at any time.

     The last stop was the Catholic Ursuline College located in Great Lakes Megalopolis, in Cleveland, Ohio, Midwestern USA. Sister Diana Stano, the president of the College, picked the delegation up in person at the airport and guided them to tour Cleveland City. The frequent interactions of the two schools can be traced back to 2003; since 2009, Wenzao has been assigned a group of senior admin supervisors to participate yearly in a short-term program arranged by the College. Sister Diana also visited Wenzao several times and many compliments were heard from her; she values Wenzao so much and therefore designed a large display room on campus to collect documents and souvenirs received from the interactions with Wenzao in order to introduce Wenzao to the faculty members.

     Recruiting mainly female students, Ursuline College still has a minority of male students in some departments. In addition to the humanities and social science, the College is also well known for its nursing, a department which performed extremely well in Ohio. There are programs for the bachelor, master and doctoral diplomas at present; teaching and research both received many compliments. Beyond the discussions on assigning professors or doctoral students of the Department of Nursing to instruct students of Wenzao for the English program, the academic collaborations in international business management, Chinese language instruction, and general education were also discussed. Both schools agreed that related cooperation should be achieved before the end of this December, and accurate plans should be made as soon as possible.
