Other cultural excursions included visits to the Meredith Corporation at the World Trade Center, the Intrepid Museum, Citibank, and the American Museum of Natural History and Planetarium.

About the Global Alliance
Berkeley College established the Global Educational Alliance following several years of negotiations with GUFE. The Global Educational Alliance Program at GUFE gives students from China the opportunity to earn their Associate’s degree at GUFE and complete their Bachelor’s degree at Berkeley College. To facilitate the process, Berkeley College faculty also teach courses at GUFE each semester to familiarize Chinese students with American pedagogical methods. In addition, GUFE students have participated in summer programs at the Berkeley College White Plains campus that focused on American culture and business.

The Alliance also includes a faculty education element. This past summer, Berkeley College professors instructed faculty members from GUFE in teaching methods and practices at Berkeley College campuses. Visiting GUFE faculty participated in workshops focusing on instructional design, cultivation of student-centered teaching discipline, course design and development, and strategies for transcending language and cultural differences.
