2011 - CAC Student and Faculty Member in China

Joan Miller, a sophomore student at Central Arizona College, has been awarded a scholarship to attend Northeastern University in Shenyang, China, during the Spring Semester of 2011. In addition, Dr. Beth Krueger, Professor of Biology at the CAC Aravaipa Campus, taught as a visiting professor in the NEU Foreign Studies College during the same semester. Miller and Krueger traveled to NEU as part of the student/faculty exchange program that has been in existence since 2003. While at NEU, Miller was enrolled in Chinese language classes, as well as completing an independent study class in her major field of study; Krueger taught a variety of classes to Chinese students, from freshman to graduate student, during her time at the university.
