William Jewell College has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Northeast Normal University in Changchun, China, to pave the way toward future cooperative efforts that will be of benefit to both institutions.

Dr. Timothy Fulop, Dean of the College and Vice President for Academic Affairs at William Jewell, recently completed a week-long visit to China to meet with representatives of the comprehensive university located in the Jilin province of northeast China. Dr. Fulop met with deans of schools at NENU, in addition to visiting area highs schools to speak with students and build the foundation for future relationships. William Jewell will seek to recruit superior students from these top Changchun high schools.

“William Jewell has been a strong advocate of study abroad programs for more than 30 years,” Dr. Fulop said. “This agreement allows us to continue the rich tradition of expanding the horizons of Jewell students while increasing the cultural diversity of our college community.”

The agreement will allow the two schools to move forward on plans that would allow Chinese students to complete two years of course work at NENU and then transfer to William Jewell College. The agreement also provides for the possibility of faculty and student exchange programs and summer study programs for NENU students and faculty at William Jewell.

NENU presently comprises 19 schools, 56 undergraduate specialties and a graduate school, which offers 145 M.A. degree specialties and 77 Ph.D. degree specialties. There are 22,221 full-time students and 1,294 full-time faculty members.

William Jewell College is committed to bringing together talented students and gifted faculty mentors within a vibrant community sparked by a rigorous and intentional liberal arts curriculum. A full range of personal and professional development experiences are presented by the selective national liberal arts college’s location within the Kansas City metroplex of more than 1.5 million.
