EMU renews partnership with university in China

Eastern Michigan University President Jim Smith has returned from a visit to Beibu Gulf University in southern China.

The president and other EMU officials recently traveledthere to strengthen their ongoing partnership with BGU. The two universities established a program two years ago that allows BGU students to take courses at EMU and graduate with a degree from both schools.

President Smith says they couldn’t visit the campus until now because of travel restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Think of it as a ribbon cutting. We were able to cut the ribbon and open the facility although we’ve been operating for almost two years.”

Smith says it was great to finally meet the students and faculty involved in the partnership, and he hopes some of Beibu Gulf’s faculty will be able to tour EMU’s campus this November.
