Several Chinese business and educational leaders visited the LeTourneau University campus Wednesday
to explore possible academic partnerships with LeTourneau University. The visiting dignitaries were
led by Reverend Clifford Liu, a Chinese pastor and leader of the Chinese for Christ Bible Institute
(CCBI) / American International Culture Exchange Institute (AICEI). Liu initiated the visit to LETU
after hosting Dr. Robert Hudson, executive vice president for Academic Affairs, during his trip to
Shanghai, China, earlier this spring.
Guests included Mrs. Syuing Yao, CEO of Shanghai Jiaowei Economic and Commercial Co. Ltd.;
Mr. Wen Xian Xue, senior advisor of Shanghai Qianyang Enterprise Management; and Zi Jian Zhuang.
During their visit, hosted by Hudson and Marta Martin, director of the university’s Office of
International Studies, the group met with LETU deans and enrollment leadership, toured the campus,
including the newly opened Abbott Aviation Center, and discussed the university’s global
initiatives as part of the “Every Workplace, Every Nation” vision: Claiming every workplace in
every nation as our mission field, LeTourneau University graduates are professionals of ingenuity
and Christ-like character who see life’s work as a holy calling with eternal impact.
