HAU builds new international linkage with two foreign universities

The Office of International Affairs (OIA) is pleased to announce that Holy Angel University recently established an international academic cooperation with two foreign universities, namely, Kkottongnae University (KU) in South Korea and the University of Western Sydney (UWS) in Australia.

Acting University President Engr. Geromin T. Nepomuceno, Jr. and KU President Dr. Lee Won Woo signed the Memorandum of Understanding between HAU and KU during formal signing ceremonies held in the University on July 8, 2014.

KU was founded by Fr. John Oh, a Korean Catholic priest who received the Ramon Magsaysay Award in Public Service in 1996. It is the foremost university in Korea specializing in Social Welfare.

On the other hand, the Memorandum of Understanding between HAU and UWS was signed by Engr. Nepomuceno and UWS Vice-Chancellor and President Prof. Barney Glover through an exchange of signatures. The agreement commenced on August 28, 2014.

UWS was named as one of the world’s best 100 universities under the age of 50 this year by the influential Times Higher Education, based on “performance indicators such as research, teaching excellence, international outlook, connections with industry, and innovation.” It has a student body of about 42,000.

The agreement between the University and its new foreign higher education institution-partners aims to foster mutual cooperation in teaching, curriculum development, training, and research.

It encourages visits by and exchange of faculty, researchers, academic personnel, and students; exchange of experts and training programs; exchange of educational literature, research findings, and publications; joint development of curriculum, teaching materials and research projects; and participation in seminars, educational congress, workshops, training courses, and special short-term academic programs.

The development of proposals for collaborative programs with these foreign partner-universities, which may be coordinated through the OIA, is highly encouraged from among HAU officials, deans, administrators, researchers, program chairpersons, faculty members, staff, and students.
