Chinese university vice-presidents to visit Queen's
Vice-presidents and senior administrators from 20 Chinese universities will visit Queen's on Nov. 26 to learn more about how Canadian universities address trends and develop strategies for development of academic and research programs.
Senior administrators from Queen's will present sessions on several topics, including the university's history, governance and management structure, academic staffing and professional development, maintaining and optimizing a core research team, and an overview of key research initiatives.
This is the second time that Queen's has hosted a training delegation from SAFEA . Last fall, the university hosted 25 senior administrators from 22 Chinese universities.
“These delegation visits help to raise the university's profile in China and hopefully lead to new opportunities for academic and research collaborations”, says John Dixon, Associate Vice-Principal (Academic & International).
The delegation will also visit other Canadian universities, including McGill and the University of Toronto.
