On Feb 3, NTU welcomed our prestigious guests visiting us from our partner university—Cornell University, including Provost of Cornell University Michael I. Kotlikoff, Vice Provost for International Affairs Wendy Wolford, and Asia Director for International Alumni Relations Hongnan Ma.
The delegations were greeted by Prof. Hsiao-Wei Yuan (袁孝維), Vice President of International Affairs at NTU, who is also a Cornell University Alumni, and met with NTU representatives to have an in-depth discussion on how to deepen bilateral research collaboration with Cornell's Global Hubs under multiple themes such as Future City, Big Data, AI, and Sustainable Development. In addition, NTU President Wen-Chang Chen (陳文章) also hosted a dinner banquet, gathering NTU faculty members who graduated from Cornell to reunite with our honorable guests.
- Cornell University promotes Global Hubs to support its long-term international cooperation development, including teacher-student exchanges, teaching and research cooperation, alumni relations, etc. Currently, there are 17 universities from 11 countries that belong to Cornell's Global Hubs strategic partner universities.
- NTU and Cornell are very similar in terms of the number of faculty members and students, as well as the distribution of research fields. The deep relationship between the two universities also originates from about 66 Cornell alumni who are currently teaching at NTU.
