On November 1st, Prof. Thomas Schneider, the Chief Executive of the Association of Pacific Rim Universities (APRU), and his delegation visited SYSU. President Gao Song met with the guests in Zhongshan Building on the Guangzhou South Campus. Representatives of the SYSU CYL Committee, Office of Education Administration and Office of International Cooperation & Exchange attended the meeting.

Gao Song expressed his warm welcome to the Chief Executive and his delegation, briefed them on SYSU’s development in recent years, and emphasized on the cultivation of talents, reforms of the faculty system and the personnel system. He said APRU is an excellent platform for high-level cooperation and exchanges among universities. Since joining APRU in 2021, SYSU has gained more opportunities to collaborate with the association’s member universities in the areas of student exchanges, global health, biodiversity, and indigenous studies. In the future, SYSU will continue to strengthen the connection with APRU, participate in the activities of the association, and moreover, will contribute more to the association by utilizing its own advantages.

Chief Executive Thomas Schneider thanked SYSU for the warm reception and introduced the five strategies pursued by the alliance: One Pacific, University of the Future, Pacific Classroom & Careers, APRU Culture & Diversity, and APRU Connect. He said the association hopes to do more in the areas of AI & higher education, innovation & entrepreneurship, music, arts and sports. He also expects SYSU to actively participate in these areas.

Representatives from Office of Education Administration, SYSU CYL Committee, and Office of International Cooperation & Exchange also introduced to the guests SYSU’s work on internationally oriented talents training, the Second Classroom for students, and exchanges and cooperation with APRU.
