Study-Abroad Students to Present Plays on April 21

UNC Charlotte study-abroad students will present both live and recorded scenes from their 2014 London production of Shakespeare’s Pericles and Cervantes’ The Sultan’s Queen on Tuesday, April 21, at UNC Charlotte’s McKnight Hall in the Cone University Center.

The performance, free and open to the public, will be from 7:00 - 9:00 PM and will include a question-and-answer session with a student-faculty panel.

While studying in England last summer, the students created an innovative theatrical production that combined works of Shakespeare and Cervantes while exploring topics such as diversity, theatrical performance, language, history and the craft of theatrical writing.

Professor Receives Award from Charlotte Chamber

Victor Chen, assistant professor of international management in the Belk College of Business, has received the 2015 Young Professional (YP) Educator Award from the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce Young Professionals (YPs).

Chen received the YP Educator Award, which recognizes an individual who is a dedicated teacher, professor or administrator who has made a tremendous impact in the educational institution and community in which they serve. Nominees not only contribute to the academic success of their students but help to prepare students for a successful life as productive citizens in society.

At UNC Charlotte, he teaches both undergraduate and M.B.A. international business courses. His M.B.A. teaching adopts an engaged model, in which he advises his students to provide free consulting reports to major international business players in Charlotte. "As an educator in Charlotte’s urban research business school, my core mission is to make positive change in the business community through my teaching and research. My work helps to identify the gap between the knowledge and practice of international business and find solutions to business dilemmas faced every day," Chen said.
