The TWU delegation joined David Mulroney, Canadian Ambassador to China; Pat Bell, BC Minister of Tourism and Jobs; and representatives from Hebei University for the Education Partnership Signing Ceremony.

校长Jonathan S. Raymond博士和到访中国的TWU代表团于11月12日,周日回到加拿大。TWU代表团除了代表学校进行招待和相关工作外,还和四所著名高校签署协议,并为中国学生的家长和校友举办了三次午餐宴。

Raymond表示:“对学校来讲,政府项目和签约非常重要。我本人的重要事情是与学生家长和校友建立了联系。我很感动,他们让他们的孩子不远万里到TWU学习,接受我们的培养,这对子女爱的体现。”

TWU董事会成员Hugh Little呼应了Raymond博士的评价:“作为TWU校友的父亲,我知道TWU的影响已经在我的孩子们身上体现,听说中国家长也欣赏TWU为他的学生提供的安全、支持和关心,真是太棒了。”

在家长招待会上,TWU与中国一流大学,包括哈尔滨工业大学和河北大学,建立了新的联系,并与天津市教委和天津财经大学增强了合作。与后者的关系上,副教务长Kevin Sawatsky说:“2007年我以商学院院长身份与天津财经大学签署早期协议,现在这项协议进一步发展,并且面向未来,这实在是棒极了。不论是这个交流项目中在读还是已经毕业的学生,能与他们的家长见面,我个人是非常高兴地。”

这次出访是过去十年大量在中国发展合作关系工作的顶峰。TWU扩展中国项目主管Geoff (Shuo) Feng表示:“我很高兴看到在TWU和中方大学共同努力下这些合作正不断向前发展。我们的努力得到了回报。中国越来越多人认同TWU是一所拥有安全的、有支持的、高教育质量的,培养能力和品质的加拿大大学。这正是中国家长所寻求的。”

协议的签署代表了按照2010年3月完成的国际化专责报告强调的,整个TWU在开展全球化教育方面做出的努力。

国际专责小组组长和TWU国际联络官Philip Laird博士表示:“我们很感谢不列颠哥伦比亚政府邀请我们访问中国和印度。以为我们的国际教育战略是有重点的和有规划的,所以我们只参与了贸易代表团到访中国的部分。”

TWU的国际聚焦带来了许多项目和交流活动。11月。TWU男子篮球队在北京、天津和河北举办了表演赛。接下来的数周,TWU将设立西三一大学国际学院,2012年秋天招收第一批学生。12月,拥有十亿观众的中国中央电视台(cctv5)将播放一小时的TWU的纪录片。

校长Raymond称:“TWU是加拿大最著名的大学。毫无疑问,我们始终坚持A+等级的高水平教育和高水平的讲课和学习。我们关心我们学生的经历并且努力改变我们的学生,使他们相反的,可以影响世界。作为参加中国贸易代表团的唯一一所大学,TWU不接受加拿大大不列颠哥伦比亚省给与的资金,我们一直以来的成就就更加显著,对我们的教职员和学生是很好的证明。对这次访问我的看法是:不论是在加拿大还是在中国,质量第一。”

TWU expands global education strategy

President Jonathan S. Raymond, Ph.D., and Trinity Western University’s delegation in China returned on Saturday, November 12. In addition to representing the University at BC government receptions and events, TWU signed four agreements with high quality institutions and hosted three lunches for parents of Chinese students and alumni.

"The government events and signings were important for the University, and my personal highlight,” said Raymond, “was connecting with the parents of our students and alumni; I was moved to hear their stories of love for their children as they released them into our care and sent them around the world to study at TWU."

TWU board member, Hugh Little, echoed Dr. Raymond's comments, "As a parent of TWU alumni, I know the impact the University has on our children, it is great to hear that these Chinese parents also appreciate the safety, support, and care that TWU has for its students."

In addition to the parent receptions, TWU built new connections with top quality universities – including Harbin Institute of Technology and Hebei University – and extended its relationships with the Tianjin Education Commission and the Tianjin University of Finance and Economics (TUFE). Of the latter relationship, Vice Provost, Kevin Sawatsky, JD, said, "It was great to be in Tianjin both in 2007 as Dean of the School of Business to sign the original agreement with TUFE and now to see this agreement extended into the future. Meeting with parents of the students who are in or have graduated through this joint program was personally very gratifying.”

The trip is the culmination of a great deal of work put into developing relationships in China over the past decade. "I am pleased that we are moving these relationships forward in support of both TWU and the Universities in China. Our efforts are really paying off. People in China increasingly see TWU as a Canadian university that delivers high quality education, in a supportive and safe learning environment, to develop people of competence and character. This is what Chinese parents are looking for in a University," said Geoff (Shuo) Feng, Chinese program manager for TWU Extension.

The agreements signed in China represent the efforts of the entire TWU campus in embracing global education as emphasized in a globalization taskforce report completed in March 2010. "We are grateful that the BC government invited us to join the trade mission to China and India. We participated in only the China portion of the trade mission because our Global Education strategy is focused and intentional,” said Philip Laird, Ph.D., Chair of the globalization taskforce and TWU International Liaison Officer.

TWU’s global focus has resulted in a number of recent events and exchanges. In October, the TWU Men's Basketball team played exhibition games in Beijing, Tianjin, and Hebei. In the coming weeks, TWU will launch the International College of Trinity Western University that will recruit its first cohort for the fall of 2012. In December, Chinese Central Television (CCTV 5), with a potential viewership of one billion people, will air a one-hour documentary on TWU.

"TWU is the most remarkable university in Canada. It is no accident that we consistently receive A+ grades in the quality of our education and the quality of our teaching and learning. We care about the experiences of our students and strive to transform each student so that they can, in turn, make a remarkable impact on the world,” said President Raymond. “As the only university on the trade mission to China that receives no BC government funding for its education, our consistent quality achievement is even more remarkable and is a true testament to our faculty, staff, and students. What I observed on this trip is simple. Quality matters, whether in Canada or in China."
