This week, Mason Korea Campus Dean Dr. Robert Matz signed an MOU on ‘Community-Linked High School Credit System’ with Seong Hoon Do, Superintendent of the Incheon Metropolitan City Office of Education at a signing ceremony hosted by the Incheon Global Campus (IGC).
The aim of this high school credit system is to provide upper-level classes to qualified local high school students. Mason Korea will provide ‘out-of-school education’ such as Conflict Analysis, Communication, International Studies, and Chinese courses, and will strive to cultivate knowledge and skills to solve 21st-century problems. This will allow high school students in Incheon to take credit-certified classes at Mason Korea and Mason Korea to contribute to the community by providing educational opportunities for high school students in Incheon.
Dr. Matz thanked the IGC Foundation and IGC university representatives for taking part in the high school credit system during the signing ceremony. "The Incheon Metropolitan Office of Education's introduction of a ‘Community-Linked High School Credit System’ and collaboration with foreign educational institutions are aimed at ensuring many high school students in Incheon have a choice to foster global citizenship and career development, which is in line with George Mason University's mission to create a more just, free, and prosperous world," he said. "I would like to thank the Incheon Metropolitan Government and the Office of Education for their support and look forward to working together in various ways."
