Dr. Ge Chen, assistant vice president, and Dr. Leonard Moore, associate vice president, will co-facilitate the program which will help first-generation college students combine their passion for entrepreneurship with their desire to help others. Students will be spending four weeks in Beijing working twice a week with children at the Dandelion School, which helps educate migrant children who are often unable to gain access to local schools. A $150,000 grant from The Coca-Cola Foundation will provide significant scholarship assistance for eligible first-generation college students participating in this new study abroad program.
