CCID Spotlight!

September 20, 2016

By Dr. Julianna Borders, Coordinator of Global Partnerships

Terra State Community College became a member of the University of Toledo Community College Internationalization Consortium in August 2015. Dean Andy Carroll and I traveled to China in May 2016 to participate in a consortium-led delegation visit. We flew to Shanghai and then to Wuhan where we spent time on the campus of our partner college, Wuhan Polytechnic, meeting students and working on an articulation agreement in Mechanical Engineering Technology. While in Beijing, we participated in the PathPro workshop organized by the China Education Association for International Exchange (CEAIE) which was attended by 40 delegates from different higher vocational colleges in China. In October, Terra State President, Dr. Jerome Webster, will visit Wuhan Polytechnic on his trip to China.

Terra State student, Katerina Molyet, was selected to join other consortium member community college students on the China—US Rising Star Study Tour.  The two-week four-city tour was funded by CEAIE.  The subject of this year’s tour, which took place in August, was Innovation and Entrepreneurship.

In July, Terra State also hosted 19 students from four different Chinese higher vocational colleges including the Wuxi Institute of Commerce and Changsha College of Environmental Protection.
