25-year Partnership with Beijing University Celebrated


UMF President Foster was recently invited to China to celebrate the 25th anniversary of its longstanding partnership with Beijing University of Technology. Begun in 1989, the exchange program began a few years after China began to allow visitors in the early 1980s, according to the Daily Bulldog. Foster was joined in the commemoration by BJUT President Guo Guangsheng and Chinese dignitaries, students, faculty and administrators associated with the program. In addition to the BJUT program, UMF is looking to improve its international offerings by developing similar relationships with two other universities in China. “We’re trying to seed and nurture these relationships,” said Foster.
