The University of Illinois plans to open an office in China later this year.
Pradeep Khanna is associate chancellor for corporate international relations at
the school. Khanna tells The News-Gazette (http://bit.ly/1ahCsrT) that the
university plans to hire up to three employees for the new office in Shanghai.
A delegation of University of Illinois alumni is traveling to Beijing and
Shanghai next week. The group of about 50 people will meet with alumni and visit
companies and universities that have partnerships with UI.
UIUC Chancellor Phyllis Wise visited China last year. She is scheduled to host
the opening ceremony for the office on Dec. 9.
