IMG 3084Nine Ohio State students studying Chinese participated in the Global Leadership Academy at Wuhan University in Wuhan, China, from May 2 – 26. The trip was coordinated by the Global Gateways and made possible through a $50,000 grant from the U.S. Department of State.

The goal of the program was to give Ohio State students an education abroad experience through a culture and language practicum and to develop leadership skills, while also providing students in Wuhan the opportunity to learn from and participate in language and cultural exchange.
