Lamont Repollet, president of Kean University, highlighted the pivotal role of youth in shaping the future of US-China relations during his visit to Wenzhou-Kean University for its 2024 commencement.

Celebrating the institution's 10th anniversary, Repollet underscored the university's mission to nurture ambassadors well-versed in both cultures, fostering deeper bilateral friendship.

Repollet expressed hope that Wenzhou-Kean University will make efforts to enhance the university's academic and research capabilities, with a focus on artificial intelligence and sustainable development.

He praised the international campus community at Wenzhou-Kean, which boasts a diverse faculty from over 40 countries, enriching the educational experience with a blend of cultural perspectives.

Repollet also affirmed that the future of US-China relations rests with the people, especially the youth. He noted that students from both Wenzhou-Kean and Kean University in the US are living proof of this belief.

Looking ahead, Repollet envisions Wenzhou-Kean University as a landmark research institution, serving local and global communities. The university aims to bolster its academic influence through research collaborations with Chinese industries and communities.

Impressed by the cross-cultural capabilities of students like Ben, an American exchange student who now shares his transformative experiences as an ambassador, Repollet sees the exchange program as a testament to the university's success in bridging cultural gaps and preparing students for a globalized world.
