1/24/11 Fullerton, CA - Dongseo University in Korea to Sign Agreement with Hope International University

On Monday, January 24th at 11:45 a.m., Hope International University (HIU) and Dongseo University (DSU) of Busan, Korea, will be holding a signing ceremony in recognition of an expanded educational partnership between the two universities.

Through this new agreement, 100 students from DSU will be enrolling at HIU for one year as full time students. They will be enrolled in English as Second Language courses as well as other courses.

DSU is a prestigious, faith-based University in Korea, known for its rigorous curriculum and global education focus. Its tagline is “Top ten and to the world” and it attracts students from all over the world who have high academic achievements and career aspirations. It has sister universities all over the world to provide its students with a global focused education.

HIU is honored to engage in this educational partnership and looks hopefully to the future relationship as one to provide expanded opportunities for both parties and newfound avenues for prospective growth and breadth of programs. Dr. John Derry, President of HIU states, “We anticipate expanding educational opportunities to serve the local Korean community.”

Over the past several years, HIU has hosted a small group of DSU students each semester through the Institute for International Studies ESL program. The success of these groups has proved to serve as a launching pad for progressively adding further opportunity with DSU. The signing ceremony will also include a luncheon in the Christensen Room followed by an unveiling of new exterior signage on Nutwood Avenue.
