Professor Youmin Xi (pictured below), executive president of XJTLU, said: “The training provided XJTLU an opportunity to present our exploration, experiences and achievements. It also provides a chance for XJTLU to re-think and re-recognise itself.”
Wa Zong showed his recognition of XJTLU’s ten-year achievements as a Sino-foreign cooperative joint venture, saying “XJTLU’s educational model is an innovative model. It’s innovation in higher education management is especially useful for Chinese higher education reform to learn from and think about.”
The training was jointly organised by the Sino-foreign cooperative education committee of CEAIE and the Institute of Leadership and Education Advanced Development at XJTLU.
The Sino-foreign cooperative education committee was established in July 2012 with the approval by the Ministry of Education of China. The committee is a sub-branch of CEAIE.
