Welcome to SUSTech Global!
SUSTech Global is the organizational node at SUSTech serving the University goals of global development and campus internationalization, a strategic orientation fundamental to the University’s drive to grow into a world-class university. Since its establishment in January 2015, SUSTech Global has played a key role in supporting international education and research exchanges, forming global partnerships, building the reputation of SUSTech on the world stage of research universities, and fostering a Chinese-English bilingual campus community for a diversified body of scholars and students with different nationalities.
At SUSTech, International communications and collaborations permeate through the university life. We work closely with academic and administrative units to ensure the translation of collaboration intention to meaningful education and research activities. As a bridge between the University and the world, we facilitate out-bound and in-bound mobility programs for students, faculty members and staff members to promote understanding beyond boundaries of discipline, border, or culture.
As an environmental hydrologist by training, I see the world being connected between human society and nature, country and country, past and future. I see my work of research, teaching and leading SUSTech Global as an integral part that fulfills the university obligation to give back to the world for its prosperity, peace and sustainability. At the beginning of the third decade of 21st Century, the world is experiencing unprecedented changes and China is a significant part of what is changing. To promote global understanding and collaboration is more important than ever before. SUSTech Global continuously serves the creation of meaningful connections between local and global, and all are welcome to join our efforts!
