On Friday, July 29 the Saint Mary's community bade a fond farewell to a group of delegates from Beijing Normal University – Zhuhai (BNUZ).
The closing ceremony featured heartfelt speeches, songs, gift exchanges and many personal reflections between new friends.
The group came to Saint Mary’s from China for a 14-day summer institute focused on intercultural exploration of strategies and best practices in university teaching and administration.
In addition to discussing perspectives on teaching and administration, the delegates enjoyed tours and events featuring Nova Scotian culture.
This is the second year for the event.
