Trine seeks to attract Chinese students
Trine University’s globalization efforts were noted in national publications this week.
Trine is looking beyond its campus to promote and push the idea of globalization, according to its vice president of enrollment management, Scott Goplin, the Angola, Ind.-based Herald Republican reported Aug. 1.
In recent years, the number of international students on campus has risen from 11 to 54.
Now the university is focusing its attention on developing relationships with students in China. This fall, Trine will welcome six Chinese students to its campus.
“The ultimate goal is to see about five to 10 Chinese students a year,” Goplin said.
Goplin was encouraged to visit China by university trustees Ralph and Sheri Trine, who had been doing business there since 1988.
“Ralph and Sheri go frequently over there on business. Sheri said she had friends there — people they do business with — who would host me if I’d be interested in going over,” Goplin said. “It’s an extremely important country that largely is still untapped that would be a tremendous source for students.”
