Durham, NC - President Li Xiaohong and other senior leaders of Wuhan University spent Thursday on campus for meetings with Duke faculty and administrators.
Li and Duke President Richard H. Brodhead signed a memorandum of understanding extending the schools' collaboration to areas including faculty, staff and student exchanges and training opportunities.
Wuhan, the oldest comprehensive university in China, is a partner with Duke and the city of Kunshan in the development of Duke Kunshan University. In June 2011 the two universities entered into an agreement formalizing their cooperation in the fields of global health and nursing.
The group's itinerary included meetings with Duke faculty members and administrators and a dinner hosted by Brodhead.
