The Higher Education Evaluation and Accreditation Council of Taiwan (HEEACT) is delighted to sign a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) with the International Centre of Excellence in Tourism and Hospitality Education (THE-ICE) this year. The friendship between HEEACT and THE-ICE began in October 2018. In the context of establishing links of friendship and cooperation, HEEACT and THE-ICE signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). To explore further opportunities for jointly working in cross-border accreditation and information exchange of higher education review activity, HEEACT and THE-ICE signed a MoA with the signatures of HEEACT’s Executive Director Kuang-Chao Yu and THE-ICE’s Chief Executive Director Craig Thompson in October 2023 in Taipei.
Established by the Australian Federal Government in 2004, THE-ICE aims to develop relevant standards and promote excellence in the tourism, hospitality, and events (TH&E) sectors. Since its transformation into a non-profit organization in 2008, THE-ICE has evolved into a global entity for accreditation, benchmarking, and enhancement of quality assurance in the field of tourism, hospitality, and culinary arts (TH&E) education.
This MoA not only continues the collaborative relationship between the two parties but also further affirms the joint launch of a cross-border accreditation program. The purpose is to assist in enhancing the quality of education in the TH&E sectors, strengthen international connections, and collaboratively facilitate further exchanges aimed at ensuring higher education quality assurance.
