China has again beckoned for top University of Michigan officials - and this time a delegation from the alumni association is making the trip to host receptions in Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong for Chinese alumni this week.
The visit comes nearly one year after U-M President Mary Sue Coleman led an 11-person delegation last June to sign agreements on academic and research efforts with four Chinese universities.
This time, alumni officials are leading the trip to China, hoping to re-establish ties to alumni there who can support the university's ambitions."
