In the very near future, we will be welcoming two new scholars from Yang-En University in China to our campus, Professors Melya Wei and Yannei Lin, both scholars in English. At the end of the fall 2014 semester, we said good-bye to Professors Christine Cia (School of Arts & Sciences) and Anna Zhang (School of Business), but we have plans to reconnect with them in China later this semester. More to come…
Just last week, we greeted a team of colleagues from China, who are visiting the campuses of the 5 universities that make up our China consortium, known as The Alpha Group (TAG). Together, these five universities, including Benedictine University (Chicago), Saint Thomas University (Houston); Alvernia University (Reading); Mount Saint Mary’s College (New York) and Gwynedd Mercy University are TAG. The five universities are working together to create opportunities for our students and faculty to engage in academic and cross cultural experiences.
Their visit provided a great opportunity to showcase the GMercyU campus and the city of Philadelphia. Thanks to Dr. Heather Pfleger, Dean of the School of Business, and Dr. Lisa McGarry, Dean of the School of Arts & Sciences, we are working on articulation agreements with universities in China.
This visit provided a great opportunity for our colleagues from China to experience the vibrancy of our campus and the commitment of our university community to engage in international exchange.
