Although the Fulbright Program in sponsored and funded by the U.S. Department of State, this is my personal blog and reflect my own thoughts and experiences. This is not an official Department of State website, and the views and information presented do not represent the Fulbright Program or the Department of State.

I found out that I will be teaching at China Foreign Affairs University (http://www.cfau.edu.cn/cfauEN/index.html) in Beijing. This is China's only university not run by the Ministry of Education, but rather by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. So it should be a great opportunity to meet and interact with diplomats from all over the world and teach part of the next generation of China's foreign service. This is really great news, very happy with the placement. They have departments of Diplomacy, English and International Studies, Foreign Languages, International Law, International Economics, and Basic Education. I will find out more at my June orientation in Washington, DC and another in Beijing at the end of August. For now, still must finish working on all my preparation.
