LOCATION CHANGED to 15 Cornell Hall (previously scheduled in 205 Cornell Hall). China today bears little resemblance to the country that I first visited in 2003. Dramatic changes have occurred in the past 10+ years. I would like to share what I have observed and learned through my working in China and with Chinese partners as the director of Asian Affairs Center and also as the director of Confucius Institute at the University of Missouri.


  • Casual attire is the minimum dress requirement for attendance at this event. View a description of this attire.
  • 10 PDP points earned for successful completion.
  • 50 minutes is the expected time commitment for successful completion.
  • Value Differences competency addressed in this professional development experience.
  • The TCoB Study Abroad Department is the organizer for this event. This organizer is working with the PDP office to have PDP points awarded for students who successfully participate in their event; therefore, procedures for event registration, check-in, timeline for processing PDP points and other event details may be different from typical in-person PDP sessions. Please refer to information in the body of this calendar event and/or emails from the event organizer for possible further information and/or instructions. Important note: while some details may vary, there will be no change from the PDP Programming Syllabus regarding (1) the students’ responsibility to take appropriate steps to have their presence documented in order for attendance to officially be recorded (2) specifics for the minimum attire requirement, and (3) students will have 5 business days after the event date to dispute points awarded/not awarded.

This session takes students beyond the foundational knowledge gained in the BA course series (BA 1500, BA 2500, BA 3500) and helps students prepare for BA 4500 internship course opportunities and the professional world beyond.
