MTM faculty have spent several years negotiating and working to adapt the MTM program to Mandarin, in partnership with Central China Normal University. The program kicked off in the spring of 2016 with 12 CCNU students on-campus in Wuhan, China, who reported an enjoyable year and gave highly rated evaluations of the overall program. Collaborative efforts and relationships continue to grow with CCNU faculty joining MTM faculty at the Pathways conference in Africa, and with both faculty and students planning to attend the Tourism Naturally conference in Italy this fall.
