Sociology Professor Yan Yu Took Part in a Celebration of a Decade-Long Partnership with the Grand Rapids Chinese Language School
April 19, 2016
The event was intended to celebrate community and university collaborations and allow language school volunteers and students to show their appreciation for the support Grand Valley provides to the school through physical space for classes and time volunteered by faculty and staff members.
The school has held classes at Grand Valley's Pew Grand Rapids Campus for years, and volunteers from the school also take part in cultural events throughout the year on campus.
Organizers said the highlight of the event was presenting a donation from the Chinese Language School to Julie Guevara, faculty director for Grand Valley's El Salvador: Social Work study abroad program. Guevara will take the donation and pass it along to an organization that works with survivors of human trafficking.
