On Tuesday, July 21, Chinese higher education delegates visited Minnesota State University, Mankato and South Central College (SCC). The delegation included 22 representatives from 19 institutions. The visit was part of a “PathPro” partnership with several Chinese institutions, developed by Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU) and American Association of State Colleges & Universities.

“PathPro” encourages joint efforts in the development of curriculum and programs in subject areas to provide Chinese and U.S. students with multiple pathways for access to international education and career opportunities. The mission of this group’s visit is two-fold:

  • To build a path for students in Chinese colleges towards study for an undergraduate degree in the U.S.
  • To improve the overall quality of curriculum development and faculty teaching in Chinese colleges through cooperation with U.S. colleges and universities

This delegation from China included representatives from colleges who have expressed an interest in providing their students with articulation (transfer) opportunities at U.S. colleges and universities in particular program interest areas.

From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. the delegates visited SCC to learn about the college’s programs in Automotive Service, Auto Body and Collision Technology, Accounting, Marketing Management, Computer Careers, Graphic Communications, Culinary Arts and Mechatronics.

From 1:15 – 2:15 p.m. the delegates toured Corporate Graphics in North Mankato.

From 2:30 – 6:45 p.m. the delegates visited Minnesota State Mankato to learn about the university’s programs in Electrical & Computer Engineering & Technology, Computer Information Science & Technology, Accounting, Finance and Marketing.

Both Minnesota State University, Mankato and South Central College are part of the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system, which comprises 31 state institutions.
