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.
