Associated Professor of History David Campion is spending the year as a visiting Fulbright Scholar in Hong Kong.

On his blog, Campion chronicles his travels in China, weaving his contemporary experiences and historical perspectives. Campion is working in Hong Kong with a group of professors from the United States, helping to develop general education programs.

“I am spending the year on a Fulbright scholarship specially designed to help Hong Kong universities make the transition from a three-year undergraduate curriculum to a four-year one,” he writes. “It is an ambitious undertaking in which we are involved and will undoubtedly require a lot of hard work. Yet, for me at least, this is the opportunity of a lifetime, both professionally and personally. I had always hoped to be able to visit Hong Kong and East Asia and now I will be able to live and work here for an entire year at an exciting time in the expansion of higher education in the city.”
