Rollins hosts team of scholars from China Foreign Affairs University

This summer, Rollins hosted a team of scholars from China Foreign Affairs University, an elite school based in Beijing and a training ground for future Chinese diplomats.

Jennifer Cavenaugh, dean of faculty, along with political science professor Mike Gunter, modern languages professor Li Wei, and Wenxian Zhang, professor and head of archives and special collections at Olin Library, attended the meeting and held candid conversations with Chinese scholars on a wide range of issues from U.S.-China relations and the current trade conflicts to the American economy and the upcoming 2020 election.

All agreed that open communication will be important for enhancing the mutual understanding and friendship between peoples of the U.S. and China and will make efforts to further academic exchanges and collaborations between the two institutions.
