Trip to China

This week I am in China visiting our students and faculty studying in Shanghai, giving several speeches on the liberal arts, and meeting with current and potential partners in building new international programs. Yesterday, I signed a agreement for continuing our collaboration with Fudan University (one of China’s top universities), where our study group currently resides. Fudan University and Colorado College agree to promote the exchange of scholars, academic information, and other academic exchange activities for the next five years. I also exchanged gifts with Fudan’s President Yang Yuliang and gave a talk entitled “Innovation and Collaboration: A Liberal Arts Education as a Catalyst for New Ideas,” which was well-received by Fudan administrators, students and faculty. Thanks to Professors Hong Jiang and John Williams who are leading our study group and helped to organize these events!

    Ni Hao to China. Two of your cc grads are in China working at an international school (Head Principal and 1st Grade Teacher). If you have time, come see us in Dandong. — Rick and Karen Hansen Winter ’81

    I was in Shaoxing (a few hours south of Shanghai) teaching precalculus to HS sophomores in 2010-2011. My Korean friend, a professor of Chinese religion and philosophy, was at Fudan while I was in Shaoxing. He gave me a nice tour of Fudan and some other Shanghai sites. Sorry to miss the CC events there, but I have been back in the USA since Dec 2011.

    Cheers, Kerry

    I have been woking in China in education now for 9 years, 3 of them in Shanghai and now Beijing. Education has changed a lot, since the 2008 Olympics. I’ve started four international divisions and wish you the best and your “Global Citizens”
    Peace Joy
