Kim In-chul, head of Hankuk University of Foreign Studies (HUFS), visited the gathering of graduates of the Los Angeles Global CEO course on Feb. 15 at Garden Suite Hotel in the U.S. city.
During the meeting, Kim delivered a lecture on "the role of HUFS in fostering human resources for the future," encouraging the students of the special management course.
The 10th class of the course also vowed to donate US$100,000 to HUFS for the school’s on-going project to build a smart library at home.
Kim also attended a gathering of the HUFS alumni society based in southern California, followed by meetings with officials from Korean American Chamber of Commerce of Los Angeles, and the HUFS alumni community of the LA Global CEO course.
On Feb. 11, Kim also visited State University of New York at Oswego to hold talks with the U.S. school’s senior professors and deans to discuss the 2+2 dual-degree program and the expansion of existing exchange student programs between the two schools.
During the talks, HUFS gave a presentation on the Summer School that it will run at SUNY Osewogo this summer, and asked the U.S. university to lend support in having its students attend a similar program to be held at HUFS Seoul Campus.
Both universities agreed to expand the number of exchange students, while SUNY Oswego also vowed to send more students to HUFS.
The two universities also signed a memorandum of understanding on rolling out the official dual-degree program, followed by a luncheon hosted by SUNY Osewogo President Deborah F. Stanley.
