SINO-US VEN­TURES GROW

China Daily (Canada) - - CHINA -

A grow­ing num­ber of US higher ed­u­ca­tion in­sti­tu­tions are es­tab­lish­ing part­ner­ships with Chi­nese schools.

One of the most vis­i­ble prod­ucts of such part­ner­ships is Shang­hai New York Univer­sity, jointly es­tab­lished in 2012 by Shang­hai-based East China Nor­mal Univer­sity and New York Univer­sity.

SNYU is China’s first Sino-US univer­sity to op­er­ate as an in­de­pen­dent le­gal en­tity. Its teach­ing model and in­ter­na­tional cour­ses have drawn a great deal of at­ten­tion across the coun­try.

Last year, the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion for­mally ap­proved an­other Si­noUS joint ven­ture, Duke Kun­shan Univer­sity, formed by China’s Wuhan Univer­sity in Hubei prov­ince and Duke Univer­sity in Durham, North Carolina.

DKU, in Kun­shan, Jiangsu prov­ince, will es­tab­lish a global health re­search in­sti­tute to carry out stud­ies of China’s pub­lic health is­sues from a global per­spec­tive.

Both de­gree and non-de­gree aca­demic pro­grams will be of­fered to stu­dents both from China and around the world. The first stu­dents will be­gin classes in the fall.
