Provost Dave Perrin leads delegation to China

In November Provost David H. Perrin traveled to China for the 60th anniversary celebration of the Shanghai University of Sport (SUS). Accompanying him on the trip were UNCG alumna, Dr. Jo Safrit, and Kinesiology faculty members, Drs. Ang Chen and Cathy Ennis. Dr. Chen, an alumnus of SUS, has been instrumental in building the UNCG relationship with SUS including establishing a Kinesiology Lab and inviting research scholars to work with him at UNCG. No less than five UNCG Kinesiology faculty have taught short courses at SUS in the last four years. While at SUS, Provost Perrin gave one of three keynote speeches about preparing students to be community engaged citizens as a part of the President Summit for the celebration. Dr. Safrit was surprised with an Honorary Doctorate from SUS presented by Dr. Jiancheng Zhang, Professor and President of Shanghai University of Sport. The delegation also had the pleasure of spending time with two UNCG alumni who are studying for their master's degrees at SUS through scholarships offered by SUS: Debranna Cook and Robert Johnson. UNCG wishes SUS another 60 years of prosperity and success!
