SISU Students Visit USCET

August 15, 2018

The US-China Education Trust (USCET) welcomed a delegation of students and professors from Shanghai International Studies University (SISU), a long-time partner and a member of both the American Studies Network (ASN) and Media Education Consortium (MEC), for afternoon tea.

Professor Jiang Zhibin began the discussion by asking Ambassador Julia Chang Bloch to share her story of success in America. Ambassador Bloch encouraged the students to pursue their passion and to not be afraid of taking risks in order to achieve their full potential. The SISU students, on a 5-week summer course at Georgetown University, were enthusiastic about their experiences in the US and asked wide-ranging questions related to gender stereotypes and the pressures to conform to social norms in the United States.  

The gathering concluded with SISU faculty suggesting possibilities for future collaboration with USCET.
