CEBC grad attends U.S. Foreign Policy Colloquium

Thursday, June 21, 2018

KU-CEBC graduate, Dupeng Liu, was recently selected to attend the 2018 U.S. Foreign Policy Colloquium in Washington D.C., May 29 - June 1, at The George Washington University's Elliott School of International Affairs. ​

Liu was one of the top 75 Chinese graduate students in the U.S. selected to participate. Now a postdoc at the CEBC, Liu recently finished his PhD from the Department of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering at KU.

Sponsored by the National Committee on U.S-China Relations, the event gives participants the unique opportunity to interact with current and former Administration officials, members of Congress, and a host of individuals from various sectors, such as academia, media, business, lobbying groups, and the military.

During his trip, Liu visited Capitol Hill, the National Security Council, and the China Embassy. He also met with Elaine Chao, United States Secretary of Transportation, and other officials and policymakers working on U.S.-China relations.
