In Oct.26, 2012, Prof. Mel West was invited to visit our college. During the visit, we guided him around our campus. Mel was impressed by the reasonable layout and beautiful environment of our campus. Then Prof. Mel had a meeting with President Li and Vice President Linghu, they exchanged many thoughts on education development and ideology in China. Some Deans of related schools also attended the meeting; they all discussed some educational problem with Prof. Mel.
Prof. Mel works as Dean of Education School in University of Manchester, whose research focus is on educational development in rural area and minority area in China. So we believe we can find something in common in future research field. The meeting with Prof. Mel gave us more insight and advices on education major of our college, and we hope we can have the opportunity to launch cooperation in Prof. Mel’s education research in Guizhou province.
