UW President Mark Emmert is in China this week and next week, and he has started a blog to chronicle his journey.
Emmert says he wants to learn what people in China think about UW and explore new opportunities. He'll spend time schmoozing with Washington state business executives, U.S. diplomats and more than a dozen top university officials from China.
Emmert, who lived overseas as a Fulbright Fellow in Germany and a visiting scholar in Australia, wrote a nuanced article on expanding our thinking about China here. As a UW alum, I'm looking forward to reading more.
