Hofstra's Asia Center

As most of my readers know, I've been doing research on sustainability issues in China, particularly Hainan
Province in southwest China.  However, I thought I would share with you some information about Hofstra's Asia Center today.

Hoftra has made a big push to reach out to Asia and other parts of the world to internationalize our student body and our faculty.  For example, one of our new majors in Sustainability came to Hofstra as part of this effort.  My lab has also hosted three visiting Chinese faculty and I expect I will host two more this year.

The university recently opened an Asia Center focused on building partnerships and student recruitment.  You can read more about it here.  You can also watch the You Tube video below about the center.  My friend and colleague Ying Qiu is the director of the Center.

If any of my readers, whether in the US or an international location, are interested in an undergraduate or graduate degree in sustainability, please contact me.
