October 26, 2009

Lacey, Washington – On October 26 and 27, Saint Martin’s University will welcome to the Lacey campus delegates from Shanghai University of Political Science & Law (SUPS&L). The delegates include: from SUPS&L, Dr. Guo Hua Jin, delegation chief and president; Professor You De Zhang, division chief; Ms. Yu Qing Jiang, division chief; and Ms. Xu Chen, lecturer and interpreter; and Mr. Bing Zhi Xu, member of the Shanghai Law Society.

The purpose of the visit is to explore the possibility of establishing a graduate-level cooperative program with Saint Martin’s University that would allow students from SUPS&L to transfer to Saint Martin’s MBA and MED programs. The delegates will meet with the University’s Office of International Programs and Development and with faculty from the University’s College of Education and School of Business. In addition to visiting Saint Martin’s, the delegates will visit the State Capitol and the Washington State Supreme Court.
