Edgar Snow Visiting Scholar Sun Hua

Visiting Scholar Program

Since 1979, distinguished Chinese professors, researchers and performers have held faculty appointments at the University of Missouri-Kansas City for a semester or more in a given academic year.

The ESMF Board has sought and invited the best academic and cultural talent in China to fill these posts as a way of bringing together our two cultures as they interact with students, faculty, and the community.
