(November 13, 2008  Stillwater, OK) - Oklahoma State University and one of the most prestigious universities in China have signed an agreement that’s expected to lead to new options for students who wish to study in China.
The agreement, signed Nov. 4 by OSU Provost Marlene Strathe and Dr. Yanjun Qiu from Southwest Jiaotong University, could result in the development of a program at the William Spears School of Business that would enable Chinese students to transfer to Stillwater and complete a bachelor’s degree at OSU. In addition, it could enhance Chinese language instruction at OSU and offer a student exchange for OSU students to study in China while paying OSU tuition and fees.
“We envision a long and fruitful relationship that will benefit both of our universities,” said Strathe.
Contact between SWJTU and OSU was initiated in March 2007 when Vice President for Student Affairs Lee Bird was invited to visit Sichuan Province to make a presentation on American Student Affairs. She was accompanied by Tim Huff and Vivian Wang. OSU personnel visited a second time in spring 2008. Others on hand for the signing included Mark Weiser, Gerry Auel, Penny Sizemore and Jim Hromas.
