Associate Dean for International Affairs J. Bruce H. Shyu and two colleagues from the Office of International Affairs attended the 2014 Annual Conference of the NAFSA: Association of International Educators in San Diego, California during May 27 - 30. NTU was the only Taiwanese university selected to take part in the meeting's poster session, and Associate Dean Shyu and his team took the opportunity to introduce the more than 50 successful dual degree programs NTU has established with dozens of its partner universities around the world.
The NAFSA Annual Conference is the world's largest annual meeting on higher education. This year's conference attracted more than 9,000 professionals working in higher education around the globe.
On the sidelines of the conference, the NTU delegation arranged meetings with many of her international partner universities to discuss in person such issues as expanding student exchanges, promoting summer programs, and establishing faculty exchanges. Among the partners with which Shyu held discussions were the University of Toronto, Rutgers University, University of Oregon, National Autonomous University of Mexico, University of Bonn, Kyoto University, and Australian National University.
With the assistance of the Foundation for International Cooperation in Higher Education of Taiwan, the NTU delegation was joined by more than 20 other Taiwanese universities in participating in the conference.
During their visit, Shyu and his team also took the opportunity to visit NTU sister schools, University of California, Los Angeles and California Institute of Technology.
