VINCENNES, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Vincennes University announced Tuesday it has entered into a new transfer partnership with Yancheng Polytechnic College in Yancheng, Jiangsu, China.

Through the agreement, Yancheng Polytechnic College graduates can transfer to VU and earn a Bachelor of Science in Technology.

VU and YCPC officials signed an agreement during a virtual ceremony on Nov. 18. The signing took place during International Education Week, which celebrated the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide from Nov. 15-19.

“Vincennes University is excited and honored to partner with Yancheng Polytechnic College. This agreement is the culmination of years of relationship building, shared values, and the mutual respect between our two institutions,” VU President Dr. Chuck Johnson said. “So, I am especially pleased that we are able to continue moving ahead together to build this partnership, despite the pandemic. Through this agreement, YCPC students will have an extraordinary opportunity to continue their education through a baccalaureate degree with VU. This agreement also builds on VU’s existing partnerships and relationships in Yancheng, elsewhere in Jiangsu Province and China.”

VU and Yancheng Polytechnic College have an established history of collaboration.

“VU values the partnerships we have with our international institutions,” Assistant Provost for Curriculum and Instruction Rick Kribs said. “VU has laid the groundwork, and Yancheng Polytechnic College students will have a seamless transfer pathway to VU. They will have access to high-quality educational opportunities that lead to in-demand careers and rewarding jobs.”

YCPC representatives have hosted Johnson in China on three occasions. In 2018, VU welcomed a Yancheng Polytechnic College delegation to the Vincennes Campus for a four-day Cooperation Conference.

“The partnership between Yancheng Polytechnic College and Vincennes University is a testament to the dedication of Vincennes University to provide educational opportunities for students around the world,” VU College of Technology Dean Ty Freed said. “Vincennes University and the College of Technology look forward to meeting our new students and building strong relationships into the future.”
