Congratulations Dr. Wang and team. It’s wonderful to achieve this milestone and to offer excellent American government-approved courses in the world’s technology capital, Silicon Valley. As a former university business school dean, I know firsthand how hard it is to achieve this approval. Congratulations to you and your excellent team. Much continued success in the future.
“I wish the University of San Jose better and better” – Jiajin Yan
“I would like to express my warm congratulations to the University of San Jose for obtaining the right to grant a master’s degree approved by the California government, and to all colleagues headed by President Claude Wang. In 2015, President Claude Wang founded USJ in San Jose, the capital of Silicon Valley in the United States. After 6 years, it was not easy to obtain the right to grant a master’s degree. In the past few years, I have been fortunate to participate in some activities of the University of San Jose, and personally witnessed the development of the University of San Jose. As the first university founded by a Chinese-funded institution in Silicon Valley, I hope that the University of San Jose will continue to work hard, complete the WASC certification as soon as possible, and forge ahead towards the ideal. I wish the University of San Jose better and better, and I wish all friends a happy New Year.” said by Jiajin Yan.
“Congratulations to USJ on continued success” – Yinghui Zhang
Congratulations to the University of San Jose on the journey to WASC accreditation. In China, the evaluation of private colleges and universities is very strict. In particular, private colleges and universities are difficult to upgrade to junior colleges, and private colleges and universities are even more difficult to evaluate. In the United States, WASC accreditation is equivalent to China’s college assessment. Therefore, USJ has now passed the BPPE certification of the California government and obtained the qualification for a master’s degree, which is of great significance. Next, USJ will make every effort to carry out WASC certification and make every step for the later WASC certification. Looking back on the previous development process of Gocean, it has successfully held ten Chengdu Silicon Valley Innovation Reports. Congratulations to USJ for getting better and better!
“Congratulations to USJ for a new year and a new look, everything is going to the next level” – Li Liu
“Entrusted by Comrade Sheng Zhang, Secretary of the Party Committee of Sichuan Vocational and Technical College, I would like to express my heartfelt congratulations to USJ on behalf of Sichuan Vocational and Technical College. Gather here today to celebrate USJ’s comprehensive launch of WASC certification. The comprehensive launch of this work is a full affirmation of USJ’s correct school-running philosophy, rich educational resources, and excellent teaching quality.” said by Li Liu.
Yonggang Fei, executive vice president of Sichuan Tsinghua Alumni Association, and chairman of Pioneer Group, presented Claude Wang & USJ with a delicate gift. In the end, all guests discussed the issues related to USJ’s master’s qualification and WASC certification through interactive Q&A, and once again expressed heartfelt congratulations to USJ on its new journey! The meeting was a complete success!
