Duke establishes faculty council on China campus


    DURHAM, NC (AP) — Duke University has established a special
    faculty council and taken other steps to alleviate concerns about
    the school’s construction of a new campus in China.

    The Herald-Sun of Durham reported that
    law school professor Paul Haagen is chair of the newly created
    China Faculty Council. Faculty members have complained that Duke’s
    administration didn’t consult them enough about plans to build a
    campus in China.

    The council will bring together Duke scholars with expertise and
    experience in China and the region to advise the provost and
    Academic Council on program opportunities at Duke-Kunshan
    University and elsewhere in China.

    Initially, the campus will host some programs developed by
    Duke’s Fuqua School of Business and some global health programs.
