Message from the Chairman, Dr. Shawn Chen

Welcome to Sias University, one of China's most influential private institutions of higher education.


Sias University is located in Xinzheng, a suburb of Zhengzhou, in Henan Province in Central China. Considered the birthplace of Chinese civilization, Xinzheng is China's first ancient capital. As an internationally recognized and respected institution of learning, Sias plays a critical role in bringing new life and vitality to this revered ancient Chinese capital.


Sias University, a member of the Association of Universities of Asia and the Pacific (AUAP), was founded in 1998, and has been funded by The Sias Group, Inc. It is the first jointly Chinese and foreign cooperatively run school built in Henan Province, developed solely with American financing. Formerly associated with Zhengzhou University, Sias continues to have the support of Fort Hays State University (FHSU) in Kansas, USA, as well as the support of other American partner institutions such as Antioch College, Rowan University, Whittier College, and West Connecticut State University.


Sias is the first university in Henan Province authorized by the State Degree Office to carry out full-time education leading to an American Degree. Established with the approval of the State Council of Education to conduct higher education, in 2000, Sias received approval from the State Degree Office to conduct courses leading to a Bachelor's Degree from Fort Hays State University. Sias also offers curriculum for foreign students studying in China.


The university has 16 schools that include the School of Business, the School of Foreign Languages, the School of Art & Design, the School of International Education, as well as the School of Electronics and Information Engineering. In total, thirty-five different major areas of study are available to a current enrollment of 29,600 students.


At Sias, we are focused on producing versatile students proficient in English, students who have strong, up-to-date skills and knowledge, and a large global network of friends.With more than 100 foreign faculty members (the largest number of foreign faculty of any university in China) as well as international students on campus, students have the opportunity to study and interact in a beautiful and authentic international environment. They are totally immersed in an atmosphere that reflects both Eastern and Western cultures and traditions. As a consequence, our graduates will be prepared to meet the urgent demands of multinational companies for skilled, bilingual workers who can cope with the changing and challenging global economy.


Recent studies indicate Sias graduates are viewed as both intellectual and industrious citizens with desirable work skills. Their achievements are reflected in an employment rate of more than 98%.


Our school respects, encourages and helps students to realize the true value of a full life, lifelong learning, and global linkages. It is an exciting place, full of energy and hope. It's where incredible things happen and where students study hard and discover their unique abilities.


No matter what your reason for visiting Sias, I am always happy to welcome you to our campus. If you have always dreamed of coming to China, Sias is the place where you can realize your dreams!
