Friday, 12 April 2013
Trinity’s small size and close community are considered great assets. But Trinity also strives to provide global opportunities for its students.
Recently, the College welcomed Professor of English Warwick Wang from Yancheng Teachers University (YTU) in China who presented information about his institution as well as opportunities for Trinity to partner.
Wang is in charge of international projects and placing English teachers at Yancheng and is seeking to develop joint programs with U.S. colleges.
Potential opportunities discussed included:
- Teaching internships for Trinity graduates
- Sabbatical opportunities for faculty
- Visiting teachers from Yancheng at Trinity
- Joint programs for current students
President Steve Timmermans, Ph.D., said he is looking forward to further exploring the “amazing opportunities” to partner with Yancheng.
