Joining the Chinese delegation for lunch in the Silpe Gallery were (l-r) President Walter Harrison; Yu Lei, assistant professor, Barney; Ning Luo, a graduate student in communication; Provost Donna Randall; Clara Fang, assistant professor, CETA; and Associate Provost Chuck Colarulli.
During their March 29 visit to campus, the nine-member delegation had lunch with President Walter Harrison, Provost Donna Randall, and other University officials in the Silpe Gallery, where they were surrounded by a colorful display of art work from Bloomfield school children. Later, Associate Provost Chuck Colarulli and Professor of Chemistry Harry Workman led the group on a tour of the new Integrated Science, Engineering, and Technology (ISET) complex.
The delegation also visited the University of Connecticut, Yale University, Southern Connecticut State University, and Capital Community College.
Connecticut and Shandong Province formed a “sister” relationship in the 1980s to explore business and cultural exchanges. One of the officials responsible for establishing that relationship was Vice President of University Relations John Carson, who at the time was Connecticut’s Commissioner of Economic Development.
The delegation that visited the University last week was led by Wang Mingzhen, vice president of Shandong University of Science and Technology. Other members of the delegation represented Shandong Economic University, Ocean University of China, Shandong Normal University, Laiyang Agricultural College, Shandong Institute of Light Industry, and the Shandong Provincial Education Department.
Among those who joined the delegation for lunch were Yu Lei, assistant professor of insurance, Barney School of Business; Clara Fang, assistant professor of civil engineering, College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture; and Ning Luo, a graduate student in the School of Communication.
