GEC Visiting Team Finished the First Campus Tour in the US
Develop. Grow. Succeed.
In March and April 2023, Edison Yan, President of GEC Academy, and Wendy Wang, Director of GEC Academy's Teaching and Research Department, led a visiting team to the United States for a one-month visiting tour to meet with some of GEC Academy's collaborating faculty and friends the first time after the pandemic.

The GEC visiting team conducted visits to around 70 professors in world-renowned universities. From March 27th to April 5th, Edison Yan and Tracy Zhou arrived at the west coast, and visited professors at the University of California, Los Angeles, the University of California, Berkeley, the University of Southern California, Stanford University, and other universities on the west coast of the United States. After that, between April 5th and April 23rd, Wendy and Erica Sun joined the visiting team in New York and toured the east coast, visiting GEC Academy's collaborating faculty at Yale University, Columbia University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, New York University, Johns Hopkins University, University of Pennsylvania, Brown University, Carnegie Mellon University, etc.

There were two primary purposes for this visit. The first is to visit GEC’s long-term partners and faculty, many of whom we haven’t met since the pandemic. And the second one is to deliver invitation letters to professors participating in the 2023 Summer Onsite Research Programs.

During the tour, the visiting team and the professors had pleasant conversations and in-depth exchanges on the professors' academic development, cooperation experience with GEC Academy, course design ideas, feedbacks participating in faculty meetings, information on the 2023 Summer Research Program, visa etc.
Due to time constraints, during the first campus tour in the US, the GEC visiting team was only able to visit some of the GEC collaborating faculty. In the near future, we will regularly conduct such global visiting tours. Please stay tuned and we are very excited to meet all of our faculty, especially whom our team did not get the chance to meet yet!
