Q College Students Take Part in “SAP Global - USA” United Nations Project
On January 8, 2023, eight Dongseo University students selected through Q College left for the United States to work
on a United Nations project called SAP Global - USA.
SAP Global - USA is a global UN project unique to Q College, with earned credits given to students at St. Mary's University in Texas.
The project tasks students with presenting ideas to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Q College has been promoting this project since last year.
In addition to their work on the project, the dispatched Dongseo University students will participate in local activities such as special lectures by global leaders every Tuesday,
interactions with local students at the King Sejong Institute jointly operated by Dongseo University and St. Mary's University, mutual mentoring and cooperation with KSI teachers,
and various internships.
Q College Dean Kwak Joon-shik said, “Through this program, students from both universities will build good mentor-mentee relationships and understand each other's languages
and cultures. In addition, students who perform well in the internships will receive a plaque of appreciation.”
Dongseo University’s Q College was established in 2021 as a future innovation university. It was designed as a character education challenge school, selecting students
from various majors and awarding them academic credits for entrepreneurship, creativity, and social problem solving. Q College students receive university support
through online and offline coaching and mentoring as they carry out a self-directed project for one semester each in one U.S. city, one overseas Asian city, and Busan.
