To celebrate the opening of its new Beijing Global Gateway location at the Genesis Beijing building, the University of Notre Dame is holding a series of inauguration events Oct. 14 (Saturday) to welcome faculty, students, alumni, families and partners in China.
Activities will include a panel discussion featuring prominent leaders in business and higher education from the U.S. and China titled, “Building Future Communities,” as well as a performance by the Notre Dame Handbell Choir and a celebratory Mass.
“The inauguration events celebrate the expansion of the Beijing Global Gateway’s space, programming, and community,” said Jonathan Noble, assistant provost for Asia and director of the Beijing Global Gateway. “This expansion represents an important milestone in continuing to advance Notre Dame’s academic engagement in China.”
Since 2010, Noble has been building Notre Dame’s academic reputation and network of partners in the region. Notre Dame has forged academic cooperation agreements with a number of leading universities in greater China, including University of Hong Kong, Tsinghua University and Peking University.
