Lorain County Community College has begun new educational exchange programs with three Chinese schools and universities. Dr. Annouska Remmert, Director of International Education, initiated the exchanges during a tour in China last summer.

In September, LCCC welcomed eleven professors from the Changsha Normal University music department who presented two performances of traditional Chinese music and dance to the college and the community. Dr. Jonathan Dryden, Provost and Vice President for Academic and Learner Services and Wu Yueyue, Vice President at Changsha Normal University, agreed to an exchange of music students. Dr. Robert Beckstrom, former dean of Arts and Humanities, was invited to be one of the first exchange faculty members to visit Changsha Normal University to teach saxophone classes.

On November 7, representatives from Guangzhou Panyu Polytechnic visited the college. During the visit, the vice president and departmental deans representing the School of Information Engineering, the School of Civil Engineering, the School of Arts and Humanities and the International Exchange and Cooperation Center, participated in an extensive tour of campus and collaborative meetings with representatives from LCCC to discuss the student exchange program to begin next year.

The principal and two teachers from Zeng Guo Fan High School also plan to meet with LCCC faculty at LCCC December 7- 9. The school also plans to send several of its students to LCCC next year.
