USU choreography teacher in China
Elena Vasko, a choreography teacher from the USU faculty of culture and arts, will spend one semester teaching choreography at Jiangnan University (Wuxi, China People’s Republic).
Jiangnan, or Southern Yangtze University until this past August, has worked in close collaboration with USU since March 2003.
The agreement to send a faculty member from USU to Wuxi was reached during the most recent visit of an official delegation from the partner university to Ulyanovsk last May.
Elena became the first USU faculty member to participate in an academic exchange program with a Chinese institution of higher education.
Wuxi, situated near Shanghai, is a bustling industrial and cultural center with about seven million residents.
