As Director of Development here at CEA, I serve as a project manager as we develop new programs and locations. One of the most exciting projects in my portfolio is the creation of a new Global Campus in Shanghai, China.
Hosted at East China Normal University, the Global Campus will enroll its first group of students for Summer 2010 You can get more information and sign up for updates
on our website.
Later this month, I’ll be visiting Shanghai to examine our facilities and meet with colleagues at ECNU. I’m planning to take lots of photos of student housing as well as the neighborhood around the Global Campus, so whether it's Facebook
or through your MyCEA Account
, get connected with CEA to keep abreast of the latest news!
My itinerary includes plenty of “official business,” but I’m hoping to make time to explore the city as well. In the process of developing our curriculum plan for the Global Campus, I met and worked with a number of professors who had extensive experience in Shanghai – so I asked them what to see and do. Their recommendations include a restaurant called Din Tai Fung (which is famous for Chinese steamed dumplings), visiting the Jin Mao Tower, the Shanghai Museum, a night cruise on Huangpu River... There's just so much to do!
I’ll report back later with more details about the CEA Global Campus in Shanghai – and about spending Thanksgiving in Shanghai!
