Faculty Exchange

The Hatfield School and the Center for Public Service host faculty members from Lanzhou University as visiting scholars or through training programs. They sit in classes to learn from their peers at Portland State, engage in language improvement activities, and exchange insights and ideas about research programs. Meanwhile, they enjoy all the fun and beautiful scenic views Portland offers!
