     For the purpose of becoming a Cyber University and advancing international academic exchanges, President Chou led the Dean of Academic Affairs, Dr. Li-yen Chen and Director of Continuing Education Division, Dr. Wan-tsai Kung to visit several top universities in the United States and learn from their success in E-learning; meanwhile they signed partnership agreements so that programs for exchange students, internships abroad and collaborative interactions can be conducted.


 


     Seven universities were on the visiting list: University of California, Los Angeles, University of Southern California, California State University, Long Beach, California State University, Dominguez Hills, University of Phoenix Online, Arizona State University and Fort Hays State University. 


 


     Director Kung expressed that the foreseen results were achieved. Each university has its characteristics. There are about 20,000 students in E-learning programs, started five years ago, at Arizona State University, and approximately 7000 students at Fort Hays State University. Their experience in enrollment, teaching materials production and student counseling have all brought excellent ideas to the preparation for the transformation of the Continuing Education Division Wenzao has spent two years on the research and development of teaching materials for distance learning. In the coming five years, budgets will be planned for establishing a Cyber University. Consequently, learning without boundaries in time and space can be accomplished and that is a trend of educational digitalization worldwide.


 


     Beyond the partnership agreements, profound academic communication is the pursuit of the visit. Mirta M. Martin, president of Fort Hays State University would love to cooperate with Wenzao’s Center for Teacher Education and Department of Foreign Language Instruction so that exchange students, internship program and E-learning for instructors can help to cultivate their high school and elementary school teachers. The lack of teachers in the states of Kansas and Texas is a very serious problem; about 5000 elementary school teachers are needed in Texas this year. 


 


     Furthermore, California State University, Long Beach showed great interest in Wenzao’s Chinese Summer Camp. Jeet Joshee, the Vice President anticipated collaboration in programs of exchange students and Chinese learning; David Schaberg, Dean of College of Humanities, has highly expectations about working together with Wenzao’s College of Holistic Education.  


 


     The delegation also visited the Ursuline College in the State of Ohio; after becoming sister schools in 2003, teachers and administrators who did not study in the USA or UK were dispatched for short-term programs, including English study and administration courses. In the future, teachers with professional nursing skills will come to Wenzao to offer instruction on related knowledge. Students are certainly encouraged to participate in Wenzao’s Chinese Summer Program. The newly assumed President, Sister Christine de Vinne had come to Wenzao several years ago as a visiting professor; her pick-up at the airport and hospitality left an unforgettable impression.   


 


     The alumni association in Southern and Northern California, respectively, welcomed the delegation with full hearts. Many alumni had attended the gatherings that were arranged by the president of each association, Daniel Wang and Celia Wu. The current development of Wenzao was recounted, and the good old days were recalled. Next Oct. is the 50th anniversary of Wenzao and they are planning to come back for the celebration.
