UWEC interim chancellor returns from China trip with Governor Walker


Eau Claire (WQOW) - Eau Claire's interim chancellor was selected to be the UW-system representative during the governor's trip to China.

He called it a successful trip promoting economic, educational and cultural ties across the globe.

The chancellor's goals were to give more students the opportunity to exchange between China and Eau Claire. 

He also wants to give them more experience in a growing global economy so they're better prepared for a future workforce. 

He finalized a study abroad program with a nursing school in China and spoke with businesses about further learning opportunities.

"Many of the Wisconsin businesses are growing fast in China.  They were open to the possibility of some of our students going for internships," says interim chancellor, Gilles Bousquet.

The interim chancellor says the rate of growth and expansion in China has created tremendous needs.

Developing opportunities for Wisconsin students to experience it firsthand is a valuable tool at home and abroad.
