The first meeting in busy program was the official welcome to ECU by Vice-Chancellor, Professor Kerry Cox, which was then followed by discussions with representatives from the Faculty of Business and Law and the Faculty of Education and Arts about future joint initiatives.
Delegates then headed to Mount Lawley Campus, where they were given a tour of the University’s facilities, prior to a dinner hosted by the Vice-Chancellor.
“It was a great pleasure to welcome delegates from Jiangxi Science and Technology Normal University to ECU as we discussed future partnership opportunities between our two organisations,” said Professor Cox.
The delegation from JXSTNU consisted of the President of the University Administrative Committee, Professor Hu Yongxin; Director, Department of Human Resource, A/Professor Li Yabao; Director, Department of Teaching Affairs, Professor Xu Depei; Dean, School of Music, Professor Huang Yuying; Head of Administrative Committee, School of International Education, Associate Professor Li Xiaoling; and Lecturer from the School of International Education, Mr Wang Yan.
The relationship between the two universities goes back to 2009, when Professor Cox first visited JXSTNU. The recent visit by our Chinese collaborators follows a visit to ECU late last year by the president of Jiangxi Science and Technology Normal University, Professor Guo Jiezhong.
