The United States Sports Academy took a step closer to delivering its sports education programs to the University of Zhengzhou in China.
A delegation led by Dr. Wu Lan-ying, Zhengzhou’s president of the Physical Education College, visited the Academy’s Daphne, Ala., campus to sign a protocol Tuesday, Oct. 25 that calls for collaboration between the universities on sport education. The agreement would include curricula support as well as faculty and student exchanges.
“This is a very meaningful protocol with the Physical Education College of Zhengzhou university,” says Academy President and CEO Dr. Thomas P. Rosandich. “We have a great commitment from the university.”
The Chinese delegation’s trip to the Academy was a follow up to discussions Dr. Rosandich had with Zhengzhou administrators during his trip to China in April. The university had invited him for talks and their recent visit to the Academy were made to cement the relationship between the two schools.
Dr. Wu, a former world champion in skeet shooting, and Dr. Rosandich admit there remains some details to work out but both are very enthusiastic about future endeavors.
