THE BADGER HERALD EXCERPT: Dean of the UW Division of International Studies and delegation member Gilles Bousquet said the main focus of the trip for him was  to      collaborate with Chinese universities to sign “memorandums of understandings,” essentially official partnerships. He said the delegation met with eight top universities and signed MOUs with five of them.

He said one of his favorite moments of the trip was their visit to Zhejiang University in Hangzhou. He said the campus environment and the comprehensive nature of the university reminded him of UW.

“I think there is a strong possibility for exchanges,” Bousquet said.
