A delegation of 50 education officials from China arrived at the Tulane uptown campus on Friday (June 1) for a tour and presentations about the schools of business, architecture and science and engineering. The U.S. Department of Commerce asked Tulane to host the group, which included representatives from academia and from the Ministry of Education.
Leading the Chinese visitors on a campus tour is Eric Smith, clinical professor of finance in the A. B. Freeman School of Business and associate director of the Tulane Energy Institute. The Freeman School coordinated the visit by the delegation.
