With the recent globalization movement and decline
in foreign student enrollment in universities in
developed countries like the U.S., universities are
looking for ways to bring education to the student
rather than waiting for students to come for
education. Therefore, opening a branch campus abroad
and bringing education to the student became an
alternative for U.S. universities to bringing
students to their campuses. There are many
challenges in teaching at such a campus and
administering such a campus. Of course, there are
exceptions, and those exceptions are trying to
provide as high quality education as they can, given
the lack of English language skills of Chinese
students, financial considerations when paying the
Chinese staff and U.S. teachers, and sociocultural
issues when dealing with staff members, Chinese
partners, and students. However, with the number of
such programs increasing in China, such joint
ventures need to re-evaluate their programs. This
book explains how American the American
education is in China and offers recommendations
regarding the future of such joint ventures.
