About us
The Office of International and Cross-Strait Affairs, originally the "Academic Exchange Section" of the Office of Research and Development, was established in 2015. In September 2015, it became an independent first-level unit, which after organizational adjustment, was renamed "Office of International and Cross-Strait Affairs" and incorporated the original Office of Lifelong Education. The Office serves teachers and students and closely cooperates with international academic exchanges, including recruiting overseas students, strengthening the internationalization of the university, and enhancing its international reputation. The Office also serves as a bridge between the university and abroad, assisting teachers and students in participating in international academic cooperation and exchanges; and constructing an international exchange platform for the university.

  1. Establish a mechanism for international and cross-strait multicultural academic cooperation and exchange
  2. Make effective use of the characteristics and resources of the university's departments to promote overseas enrollment.
  3. Provide high-quality and customized services for overseas students.
  4. Become a unit of global resource integration and administrative support within the university.
