Chancellor expands links to KU on Asian trip

Chancellor Robert Hemenway signed a memorandum of agreement with Chengchi University in Taipei, Taiwan, while on a 10-day visit to Asia in June.

The memorandum establishes an exchange partnership encouraging research and training with the university and is the first such agreement with an institution in Taiwan.

The chancellor was accompanied by Jeff Weinberg, assistant to the chancellor, and Diana Carlin, dean of the Graduate School and International Programs. The chancellor returned June 20. Weinberg and Carlin also visited Japan and met with KU alumni and students at partner institutions before returning June 23.

KU has nearly 2,000 alumni and affiliates, including scholars and exchange students, living in China, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan. All expenses for the trip are being paid by private funds.

Events included:
• A visit to Beijing University and a dinner for a group of Jayhawks living in Beijing.

• A dinner given by the KU-Korean Alumni Association, several of whose members contributed funds for KU’s Korean War Memorial and attended its dedication in April. In Seoul, the chancellor gave a luncheon for Korean educational foundation leaders.

• While on Taiwan, the chancellor also gave a luncheon for Mou-Hui King, a 1944 engineering graduate who is chairman emeritus of China Steel in Taiwan, and met with KU graduates and affiliates.
