It seems the only times I work on this blog is when we are traveling outside of the country. Another such opportunity is coming up just after the first of the year, when Joanne and I will visit China along with the Dean of the College of Business & Technology, Dr. Bob Rogow, and his wife Carol, and Business faculty member Dr. Chang-Yang Lin and his wife, Sue. We are going as the guests of Chairman Li Chunbo of the Zhejiang Medicine Corporation, a Chinese enterprise that has had a very fine relationship with the EKU College of Business & Technology for a number of years. Several EKU graduates work with ZMC. We will have the opportunity to visit a number of other highly successful Chinese graduates of EKU on our 10-day trip, that will put us in Shanghai, Xinchang, Hangzhou, Xian, and Beijing. While we are there, we will also have an opportunity meet with representatives of our friends at long established partner institutions and with some potential new partners, as well. I hope one of the things for which my administration at EKU will be remembered is the globalization of the institution.
We leave on January 2, 2010, and will return on January 11. I hope to be able to post to my blog from China and should have excellent broadband internet connections to make it possible.
