Scholars from Hainan Arrive in Hofstra
One of the benefits of being involved with international research and teaching is having the opportunity to work with great people from around the world. Today, three scholars from Hainan, China arrived at Hofstra to work with me and my colleagues on a variety of sustainability topics. As many of my long-term readers know, I have been working the China's National Institute for South China Sea Studies on a research project related to sustainable development in Hainan. Since my last trip to that island in the summer, Hofstra has hosted three delegations of Chinese visitors from that island.
The three visiting scholars will interact with my students, conduct research, and expand our understanding of sustainability. They will be here through July.
