From May 18 through June 1, in an effort to broaden Indiana University’s international reach and increase educational and research opportunities for students and faculty, IU President Michael A. McRobbie is leading a university delegation to South Korea, China, and Taiwan.
While there, President McRobbie will
- renew or sign agreements between IU and leading higher education institutions in the region
- meet with alumni and with business and government leaders
- host two special receptions for IU’s newest students from South Korea and China.
Over 4,700 students from East Asia are enrolled at IU, including more than 3,250 from the People’s Republic of China, 90 students from Hong Kong, 1,025 from the Republic of Korea, and nearly 240 from Taiwan. More than 100 students from IU Bloomington studied in China last year.
“Trips such as this one are crucial to maintaining IU’s position as one of the most internationally focused universities in the world,” President McRobbie said.
