University’s China Connection Continues

The University’s relationship with China continues to expand. In mid-March, the University’s Vice-President for Administration, Mr. Baruch Marzan, went to Xiamen University in Xiamen, Fujian, China, to present an overview of the UH administrative set-up. The occasion was the 1st Building Administrative Capacity Committee Meeting of the Global U7 Consortium, of which the University is a member. The six other members institutions come from the United States, France, South Korea, and this year’s host, China.

Marzan gave a slide presentation describing the University apparatus “at a glance” at a session devoted an Introduction to the Administration and Libraries of U7 Institutions. Other sessions of the three-day meeting were devoted to administrative staff training, staff exchanges, improving the administrative process, and exchanging library information.

The global U7 Consortium concentrates its cooperative efforts on three main programs: (1) the development of a joint education system; (2) conducting joint research; and (3) building administrative capacity at member universities.

The Building Administrative Capacity meeting developed a plan to upgrade administrative staff capacity through sharing strategies in formulating long-term development plans. Members also discussed how to assist the administrative staff improve efficiency.
