Delaware State University Partners With Two Universities in China

Delaware State University, a historically Black educational institution in Dover, has signed new agreements with two universities in China. The agreements were signed by Wilma Mishoe, president of Delaware State University, and other university officials while on a recent trip to China.

Delaware State established a new agreement with Beihua University in Jilin, China, to establish a joint English Language Institute. Initially, the institute will be established this fall at Changchun University of Science and Technology. Later similar institutes could be launched at other locations in China. The institute will be for Chinese high school students who seek to improve their English skills in order to enroll in a university or college in the United States.

Also, Delaware State University established a new cooperative agreement with Northeast Normal School to establish an Educational Leadership Doctoral Program there. Doctoral students at Northeast Normal School will do part of their work in China and travel to Delaware State University for three summer sessions as well as a one semester each in the fall and the spring. Doctoral students who successfully complete the program will be awarded an educational doctorate from Delaware State University.

“We are very happy about the new agreement with Beihua University, which enables us to offer the English Language Institute.  We are equally excited about the establishment of our Doctor of Education Degree Program at Northeast Normal University,” Dr. Mishoe said. “There has been a tremendous request for both of these programs, and we are pleased to be able to assist in fulfilling these needs.”
