With the goals of developing long-term academic partnerships and increasing research and education collaborations in Asia, the Beijing Global Gateway organizes faculty and University leadership delegations from Notre Dame to Asia, as well as from the University’s partners in Asia to the Notre Dame campus.
Notre Dame’s Asia Leadership Forum, featuring the Honorable Ma Ying-jeou, former president of Taiwan, and Dr. Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, former President of Indonesia in 2016 and 2015, provides an excellent platform for dialogues with leaders in Asia and discussions on important issues in the region.
In October 2015, the Notre Dame Global Forum: Asia, including the first-ever gathering of all the Notre Dame clubs of Asia, was held in Hong Kong. More than 30 officers representing over 20 clubs from Asia attended the Asia Club Leaders Meeting. The Forum’s luncheon focused on the topic of ethical leadership and attracted 200 attendees from Hong Kong and all over the world.
The Beijing Global Gateway regularly organizes leadership and faculty delegations to Asia, including delegations with presidents, provosts, executive vice presidents, vice presidents, and various academic leaders and faculty to meet with university, corporate, government, and religious leaders in Asia.
Notre Dame Clubs in Asia
The Beijing Global Gateway works closely with Alumni & Friends and Notre Dame alumni clubs to enhance the University’s international community, support student recruiting and career development, and host Notre Dame delegations.
