South Korean delegation visits YSU to expand partnership

Changwon National University logoA delegation of high-ranking representatives of Changwon National University in South Korea visits Youngstown State University Thursday, Jan. 30 to expand the partnership between the two schools.

YSU has had an official relationship with CWNU since 2017. Over the last two years, 10 CWNU students have traveled to YSU as visiting students, and one of those students transferred to YSU to finish his degree.

The purpose of the delegation’s visit is to extend the current cooperation agreement to other areas, including language training and summer programs, said Nate Myers, associate provost of International and Global Initiatives at YSU.

“As an international community, we have appreciated the diversity, perspective and academic excellence that Changwon National University students have brought onto campus,” he said.

“Currently CWNU is the single largest sender of Korean students who study at YSU. The relationship is very important to furthering our efforts to create an environment where YSU's domestic students can experience international diversity here on the YSU campus.”

The delegation includes CWNU’s president, dean of International Affairs and international coordinator. 

(Media note: A signing ceremony for the new agreement will be 11:30 a.m. Jan. 30 at the Pollock House on Wick Avenue on the YSU campus.)
