UNE is also pleased to welcome An Shengxi (“Ann”), a new visiting professor from China, to its main campus this semester. Ann is teaching Mandarin courses to UNE students, faculty and staff from January to May 2015.
After their arrival in January, Ann and Hanna participated in general orientation sessions offered by the UNE International Affairs Office, the Student Affairs Office, and the Office of Security and Safety, which provided them with general information about the university and Puerto Rico.
