Wenzhou-Kean University has been dedicated to the principle of “providing students with different ways of development” by introducing and referencing educational resources, critical missions and advanced patterns from prestigious universities in the US. Being well-knit with Chinese actual conditions and needs in developing regional economy and cultures, the University strives for excellence in building an international university with world-class education, which is fundamentally student-oriented, innovatively inclusive, diversely developmental and characteristically unique. With comprehensive and sophisticated practices, the University set up its pedagogical goal that aims to merge Chinese and American teaching methodologies in practice from a global context, and to cultivate students with global vision, mastering of international rules and conventions, and innovative creative and initiative competences. In terms of the strategic plan for university development, the University identified itself as a teaching university at the early stage. With the development of high-quality international cooperation in research, the University will find a balance between teaching and research in its transformation to become a research-leading teaching university with world-class education. In terms of value orientation, the University adheres to the public welfare principle of Chinese-Foreign cooperation in running as a non-profit organization.

Wenzhou-Kean University employs advanced ideology and administration system for faculty management from those prestigious American higher education institutions with sophisticated appointment system, and attracts and recruits highly talented professionals in compliance with world-class standards. Concurrently, the University will develop a scientific evaluation scheme for management of faculty and research, in order to support all the professional development at campus.

With active exploration in Chinese-Foreign cooperation in modernized higher education, the University is dedicated to the development of a unique institution with inclusive social interactions, autonomy in running, and implementation of scientific management. The Board of Directors is the highest local policy making authority, which is composed by both the Chinese and American parties. The University adopts such a governance structure where the Chancellor shall act as the executive officer, and serve at the pleasure of the Board of Directors. With persistence in academic autonomy and faculty-involved administration strategy, the University will build a precise, solid and effective internal administrative organization, as well as being with innovation and entrepreneurship.

Wenzhou-Kean University will inherit the excellence from both parental universities. By complying with the aforementioned principle, Wenzhou-Kean, a world-class university will be built with first-class campus and facilities, professional faculty communities, academic research and maintenance services. It will undergo a complex process to achieve the final goal, but the University will strike for excellence in being an exceptional model for Sino-US cooperation in education with efforts from generation to generation.
