Center faculty present a series of Student Affairs workshops to visiting administrators from several Chinese universities.

From May 24 to June 11, 2015 Higher, Adult, and Lifelong Education faculty provided a series of workshops to a delegation of 11 student affairs administrators from several Chinese universities.  The Higher Education Administration workshops were sponsored by the Visiting International Professional Program (VIPP) at Michigan State University and focused on student affairs in higher education.

The workshops were designed to introduce participants to the U.S. higher education system and the ways U.S. universities handle diverse issues on student affairs. In addition, VIPP encouraged the participants to interact with their U.S. counterparts and exchange ideas with them, thereby maximizing mutual benefits.  During the workshop, the group attended a total of 13 lectures, all of which catered to the interest and needs of the participants. 

Steve Weiland, professor of Higher, Adult, and Lifelong Education kicked off the workshop by giving a lecture on the changing minds of career development in the U.S. Two other professors in HALE, Roger Baldwin and Matthew Wawrzynski, provided additional lectures that examined various topics on the American higher education system, quality control, and the development of student affairs in U.S. higher education.
