China Classroom


China Classroom initiative is established to take advantage of the incredible China expertise in our area, specifically for the classroom setting. A faculty member teaching a course invites a local China scholar to talk to their class as a way to enhance the learning experience of the students in that class. Anybody not enrolled in that class but is interested in attending the talk should contact the faculty member in charge. During the 2020-2021 academic year, invited speakers are from around the world, thanks to the online format.
