Life University’s (LIFE) Global Initiatives has added another vibrant educational institution to a growing list of universities that recognize the value and vision of building sustainable partnerships around the world.
This December, LIFE signed an undergraduate and graduate articulation agreement with Wenzhou Medical University in Wenzhou, China.
This agreement will allow Wenzhou undergraduate seniors to attend Life University and obtain a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science, and then be able to go on to LIFE’s Sport Health Science master’s program. Qualified students may enter the Doctor of Chiropractic program as well.
Wenzhou Medical University has a student base of 22,000 and Wenzhou leadership is excited to build this relationship through LIFE Global Initiatives. Says Dr. John Downes, Vice President for Global Initiatives at Life University: “This will open the door to Chinese students’ awareness of Life University and all of our programs, including Chiropractic.” In addition to Life University seeing Wenzhou students on campus in 2016, LIFE faculty members such as Dr. Yit Lim and Dr. Cathy Faust may begin visiting Wenzhou to give guest lectures.
“It was a great moment watching Dr. Rob Scott, Provost of Life University, launch the signing of this agreement and I look forward to the day when students from Wenzhou and Marietta are experiencing the benefits of this initiative,” says Dr. Downes. “Wenzhou Medical University is famous for its innovation and entrepreneurship, so I see this as the start of a great opportunity for LIFE’s Global Initiatives in this region of China.”
