Visitors to the USA Pavilion at Expo 2010 Shanghai—the world’s fair—are getting a taste of U.S. higher education from just one university this summer: The UW. An estimated 70 million people are expected to visit the U.S. pavilion and view a video that features appearances by President Emmert and Patricia Kuhl, co-director of the UW Institute for Learning & Brain Sciences.

One Response to UW Shanghai-Bound

  1. Donald Sosin says:

    Dear Friends,

    I visited the US pavilion at EXPO yesterday and made a mental note of Pres. Emmert and Prof. Kuhl as people I wanted to write to; their onscreen appearances were outstanding and speak well for the quality of the leadership and work that is going on at UW. I went to Ann Arbor and Columbia as a music composition student, and now teach part-time at Maharishi University of Mangement in Fairfield Iowa, where the correlation between refined brain activity and creativity are being studied in depth. Though there were in fact only 7 million visitors to the Pavilion as Expo nears its end, I am glad that all of them got to hear what your two fine examples of creative leadership had to say, and I hope my colleagues can see this film as well.

    All best wishes,
    Donald Sosin
