IUP welcomed the third cohort of visiting scholars from Hebei University with a reception on September 10, 2015, hosted by the president, the provost and the Office of International Education.
The group of 11 scholars are faculty from Hebei University, a university of approximately 45,000 students located in the city of Baoding in the Hebei Province of China. The visiting professors will be at IUP for the fall semester to explore different pedagogical styles, observe courses in their academic disciplines and conduct research.
In addition, IUP faculty members have partnered with each visiting scholar to facilitate the exchange of ideas and invite them to engage in the IUP academic community. The institutional relationship between IUP and HBU was developed to encompass all academic disciplines and encourage faculty, staff, and student mobility and research.
