i believe there are differences between a web-version of english introduction to a chinese university and an online copy of a chinese university president's welcome speech. the former is expected to be a very well-written piece of text that serves as the "face" of a person called THIS UNIVERSITY (which is supposed to be flawless, isn't it?).  

the welcome speech has a quite different function, for which perfection in language is not a primary concern as long as the message is delivered with warmth and inspiration.  as these are quite personal messages from university presidents, why not just let the imperfect english text as it is?

IMHO, a Univ. president's welcome speech has the same "FACE" value as that of its introduction.
