  • Wednesday, Jul 11, 2012

(July 11, 2012) – For the second consecutive year, administrators from Zhaoqing University in Guangdong Province, China will visit the United States beginning July 9, and the College will serve as their “home away from home” for much of their visit.

During their ten-day stay in Madison, the delegation will live in campus housing, and participate in a program to introduce them to American higher education. Among the session topics – to be presented by Edgewood College and UW-Madison faculty and administrators – are organization and leadership, strategic planning, curriculum and instruction, technology transfer, and student affairs. Classroom visits, tours of the UW Institutes for Discovery, and opportunities to experience local and regional culture are also included in the schedule.

The program and visit marks a continuation of the deepening partnership between Edgewood College and Zhaoqing University, which launched in 2010. Additional programming and faculty and student exchanges are also being explored as ways to grow this international partnership, develop cross-cultural understanding between the schools, and increase global learning and engagement opportunities for faculty and students.

After their visit, the delegation will travel to the East Coast to visit Harvard, Yale and Columbia.
