PCHK Event: A Conversation with Dr. Diane Davies (November 13th, 2009)

Dear Tigers,

We are delighted to announce a very special event! On Friday, November 13th, Dr. Diana Davies, Princeton’s Associate Provost for International Initiatives, will join us for dinner at the China Club:

Date: Friday, November 13th, 2009

Time: 7.00pm (dinner will begin at 7.30pm sharp)

Location: China Club, 13/F, The Old Bank of China Building, Bank Street, Central

Please note the Princeton Club of Hong Kong will be fully sponsoring this event; accordingly we would like to restrict the event to Princeton alumni and parents. If you would like to make a donation to the Princeton Club of Hong Kong to support our activities we would greatly appreciate it, but it is by no means necessary.

More information on Dr. Davies and the subject of her talk is provided below. We are looking forward to gathering the Hong Kong Princeton community to welcome Dr. Davies and celebrate how Princeton is moving further forward "In the Service of All Nations".

Please RSVP by replying to this email ASAP, to enable us to make final plans with the China Club. This promises to be a fun and exciting event and we look forward to seeing you on the 13th of November!

Dr. Diana Davies

Dr. Davies works with academic leaders and senior administrators to implement new policies and review existing ones to further strengthen Princeton's international activities. She serves as Secretary to the Council for International Teaching and Research, the faculty governance board that provides leadership and advocacy for Princeton's international endeavors. She works to forge new links between Princeton and foreign universities and helps to coordinate all aspects of campus internationalization, ranging from study abroad and support for international students and scholars, to facilitating international research collaborations. She assists Princeton faculty, students and administrators in pursuing a comprehensive approach to international education, from the new Bridge Year Program through to post-graduate opportunities such as Princeton in Africa and Princeton in Asia fellowships.

Dr. Davies will speak to us about Princeton’s unique strategy for internationalizing the curriculum and the campus as a whole, including details of specific programs and opportunities. She will tell us about the Bridge Year Program, academic year and summer study abroad programs, international internships, volunteer opportunities and post-graduation international fellowships in Asia, Africa and Latin America. Ms. Davies will also address the ways in which Princeton supports students in internationalizing their studies through financial aid and scholarships, as well as offering a range of international experiences on campus.

PCHK: An Evening with Professor Chou Chih-Ping (Thursday, 15 October 2009)

Dear Tigers,
Apologies for the short notice, but we have planned a small, informal dinner with Professor Chou Chih-Ping of the East Asian Studies Department for next Thursday evening, October 15th. A number of you have studied under Professor Chou, who is here in Hong Kong for the next few months doing some quiet research for his next book. The venue is the upstairs portion of Cafe Iguana, 57 Wyndham Street. We only have room for 20 people, so it is "first come, first served" on reservations. Please let us know if you would like to attend by writing to princetonclubhk at gmail dot com. We have arranged a set price dinner for HK$200 (includes an appetizer, a main course, a drink and a small dessert), and younger alums (less than 5 years out) only need to pay HK$125. We will start at 7 pm and finish by 9 pm.
If there is more demand than 20 people, we will try to arrange another event for Professor Chou, but this smaller and informal setting will give those attending a chance to catch up with him more fully.
We look forward to your early response and to seeing you on October 15th.
Best regards,
Your Princeton Club of Hong Kong officers
