Published: Mar 24, 2014

LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 24, 2014) — The University of Kentucky's Confucius Institute, UK's gateway to China, will present a talk by David Adams, former administrator of the Fulbright Scholar Program, on the importance of the U.S. and China's educational relationship at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 25 at the University of Kentucky Athletics Auditorium in William T. Young Library. The lecture, "Chinese-American Educational Exchanges: A Window on the Bilateral Relationship," is free and open to the public.

 

A reception will follow Adams' lecture in the Alumni Gallery of Young Library.

 

An international education consultant, Adams worked for more than two decades as an administrator for the Fulbright Scholar Program administered by the Council for International Exchange of Scholars, a department of the Institute of International Education. Primarily focusing on East Asia and the Pacific region, including China, he has been honored by the Association for Asian Studies for his contributions to Asian studies through his work at the Fulbright Scholar Program.

 

Adams, who has a master's degree and doctoral degree in political science from the University of Chicago, conducted his doctoral research in Thailand. He holds a bachelor's degree from the College of William and Mary, where he assisted the late Tang Tsou, a leading expert on modern China.

 

Established in 2010, the Confucius Institute at UK is a center for Chinese language, culture, art and business. A gateway to China for the university and the Commonwealth, the Confucius Institute serves as the conduit for UK’s China initiatives, facilitating a range of China exchange programs across the campus and beyond. In addition, the Institute works to strengthen China Studies within the university, while at the same time providing leadership and support for Chinese language programs in Kentucky’s K-12 classrooms, and forging important community relationships through Chinese cultural outreach to people in the Commonwealth.
