GRU works with China university

  • Follow Education

Georgia Regents University is working with a Chinese university to create an institute focused on advancing Chinese language studies and enhancing multicultural awareness.

GRU officials said Wednesday the Confucius Institute is a partnership between GRU and Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine that aims to provide language and culture instruction to health professionals.

GRU Vice Provost Roman Cibirka says the institute is aligned with the state Board of Regents’ plan to globalize education, and will help the school gain international recognition in education and research fields.

University officials say the institute is to open in six months, and the partnership will also feature a museum showcasing exhibits focused on traditional Chinese medicine.

This statement has Azziz written all over it:

"will help the school gain international recognition in education and research fields."

That is all the man is about, being recognized, and it is not about the schools at all, it is about HIM!

Why not?

... Like the Peoples (snicker) Republic (guffaw), GRU is already run by a Central Committee (the Regents) overseen by an unaccountable dictator, Azziz.

The back story

The good will fostered before the suave debonair Ricardo the conqueror came aboard sealed this deal before the final signature confirmed the agreement. A big pat on the back to many and thank you .
