Saginaw valley State University has approved the creation of an office that will be leased to Taiwan’s Ming Chuan University.
The renovations, which are expected to cost $650,000, will create office space and a conference room for Ming Chuan.
SVSU spokesman J.J. Boehm said Ming Chuan is a sister university of SVSU and a relationship between the two has existed for several years. “We know that it’s an increasingly shrinking world and our students are going to need to interrelate with people from all different kinds of cultures and this will be one more opportunity for them to expand their cultural understanding.”
Boehm said the hope is that the space will increase relations between the two universities. giving students from both more opportunities for international experiences.
