Chengdu, China: Doorway to an Unforgettable Student Experience

Chengdu, China: Doorway to an Unforgettable Student Experience

John G. Dulmage ’12Lecturer of Psychology and Faculty Leader for the Chengdu American Study Abroad Program

Summer 2018 again marks another one-of-a-kind opportunity for Norwich students to take advantage of a remarkable and unforgettable academic and cultural experience in Chengdu, China. Chengdu, also known as the “city in heaven,” is the capital of Sichuan Province: the economic, cultural, and political center of Southwest China. Students will encounter the blend of past and present in a modern city integrated with a traditional past.

Led and instructed by John Dulmage, Lecturer of Psychology and returning NU Faculty Leader for the Chengdu American Study Abroad Program, these Summer Sessions will feature a credit-bearing Internship Program (11 weeks: 2 courses and a part-time internship of 5 weeks) plus a full-time internship (6 weeks), which allows U.S. college students to meet their academic and career goals.

In addition, Professor Dulmage has secured an agreement [MOA] with the Chengdu Social Workers Association which features a Service Learning component with the Tashui Community Center. This will be a practical service learning experience in the real world of social service knowledge. Assignments will include projects facilitated by the Chengdu Social Workers Association.

Program fees are competitive with on-campus summer programs; however, the Chengdu Program offers an array of scholarships and grants to help defer expenses. With early-bird discounts, student may reduce expenses even more. During the months of January through March, Professor Dulmage and G-MEO representatives will host information and planning sessions for interested students.
