China connections:  UD delegation explores exchanges with three universities

During a spring break visit to Chinese universities, a University of Delaware delegation explored connections between the U.S. and China on such issues as education and the environment.

The delegation, led by College of Arts and Sciences Dean George Watson, visited three Chinese university campuses to discuss a range of exchange relationships, especially Chinese cultural studies and UD’s burgeoning program in environmental humanities. Watson was accompanied by Matt Kinservik, interim associate dean of the college; Jianguo Chen, the director of UD’s Confucius Institute; and McKay Jenkins, Tilghman Professor of English and co-director of the environmental humanities program.
