Dr. Chen and the delegation from Sias met with the President of the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford & Titusville, Dr. Catherine Koverola. They held in-depth discussion with the Vice President and Dean of Academic Affairs, Dr. Steven Hardin, and the Vice President for Enrollment Management, Dr. James Baldwin, on cooperation in scientific research, teacher-student exchanges, and other projects. Founded in 1787, the University of Pittsburgh is one of the top public research universities in the US and is one of the oldest universities in the US as well. It is a member of the Association of American Universities (AAU) and is known as a "Public Ivy" university. Sias University first signed an agreement with the University of Pittsburgh in 2012 and has since had faculty and student exchanges as well as cultural visits.

 

At the University of California, Riverside, Dr. Chen met with the Dean of the School of Business Administration, Dr. Wang Yunzeng. He said that the University of California, Riverside, would continue their support of undergraduate and postgraduate cooperation projects, increase the amount and quantity of scholarships, and increase their support for admissions and student services. The University of California, Riverside, (also known as UCR) is a member of one of the most influential public university systems in the world - the University of California System (UC System). It is also the fastest-growing university system. It is ranked 79th among all universities in the US. In 2014, Sias University signed a cooperation agreement with the university with discussions centering on a "3+1+1" Master's degree program.

 

The signing of agreements with these three world-famous universities in the United States has given Sias a platform to increase its internationalization and ties with universities around the world.
