Faculty Trip to China for Research Collaboration

The UNT delegation team visited 12 universities in China to make research collaborations during summer 2009. An ID faculty, Jin-Gyu “Phillip” Park, Ph.D., joined the delegation team and made research collaborations. Student and faculty exchanges under the 1+2+1 Dual Degree Program were also discussed.

The 1+2+1 Program was started in 2001 under the joint administration of China Educational Association for International Exchange (CEAIE), the China Center for International Educational Exchange (CCIEE), and the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU), to promote cooperation and exchange between Chinese and U.S. higher education. During the first year of the program, Chinese students will complete their freshmen year in one of the Chinese partner universities. In the second and third years of the program, Chinese students will travel to the United States to complete their sophomore and junior years at CSUSB. In the fourth year of the program, students will return to China to finish their senior year at the Chinese Partner University. Upon completion, the student receives degrees from both universities.
