Evie Myers, NDSU vice president for equity, diversity and global outreach, recently visited China to take part in the Nanchang Hangkong University’s 60th jubilee celebration Oct. 9.
Established in 1952, Nanchang Hangkong University has transformed from a vocational school into a comprehensive university specializing in engineering, science, arts and management. Located in Nanchang, Jiangzi, China, the institution has two campuses, with more than 26,000 students.
NDSU has a memorandum of understanding with Nanchang Hangkong University to promote and develop educational exchange. The invitation was extended in recognition of the institutional relationship between NDSU and NCHU.
“It was a privilege to represent NDSU at Nanchang Hangkong University’s jubilee celebration,” Myers said. “We are pleased to be partnering with NCHU and look forward to future collaborations between our two institutions.”
In recent years, Nanchang Hangkong University has emphasized the development of cooperative agreements and student exchange programs. It currently has agreements with institutions in the United States, Japan, Canada, Ukraine, Great Britain, Australia, France, Korea and The Netherlands.
