CPTC signs cooperation agreement with Shanghai University


Dr. Zheng Gang, president of Shanghai Medical Instrumentation College, University of Shanghai for Science and Technology, and Dr. John Walstrum, president of Clover Park Technical College, sign an agreement of cooperation to develop an academic and cultural exchange.






Clover Park Technical College has signed an agreement of cooperation with Shanghai Medical Instrumentation College, University of Shanghai for Science and Technology. The agreement includes the development of opportunities for cultural exchange in an effort to work toward greater global understanding.

The agreement will guide the colleges as they cooperate to offer programs that may exchange faculty and students while also pursuing joint research projects, conferences and teaching projects.

“This is the beginning of what I hope will be a long-term opportunity to encourage our work together in an effort to provide diverse cultural opportunities for our students and faculty,” said Dr. John Walstrum, president of Clover Park Technical College. “Our mutual interest in healthcare related programs made this a fortuitous opportunity for both colleges.”

The delegation from Shanghai spent four days learning about CPTC’s campuses and the surrounding areas. Included in their trip was a tour of the college’s new 55,000 square foot health sciences facility. In addition, the delegation met with some of CPTC’s current Chinese exchange students.

“For Clover Park Technical College, this is a way to further diversify the campus experience for future and current students and to provide an environment that will allow future CPTC graduates to be more prepared for a global economy,” said June Stacey-Clemons, vice president for Student Services.
