The president of Bowling Green State University will soon be the next Ohioan headed to China.

Dr. Mary Ellen Mazey has been invited to give a presentation at the Beijing Information Science and Technology University. It will be a 15-minute presentation on the impact that university partnerships have on their communities.

The trip is all-expense paid, courtesy of the Beijing school. There will be a forum held, celebrating all of the university's international partnerships. Dr. Mazey has been invited to be vice chair of the forum.

BGSU has an exchange program with Beijing Information Science and Technology University. Mazey says these programs are a must for students.

"It enriches their academic experience," she said. "It also enriches their career opportunities, because we live in a global environment these days."

Mazey says while she is in China she will sign an agreement with the Beijing Sports University.
