Special guests include:

Professor Zhiyong Fu, Tsinghua Academy of Arts & Design

Teams present the final projects created for the International Urbanization Seminar and reflect on the service-learning experience. A valuable opportunity for faculty to learn from those closest to the service-learning process—the students themselves.

Don't miss the Project Expo in the Y2E2 Red Atrium, Guided tours 12-1:30 PM, exhibits up until 5 PM.
