Congrats to PengPeng Li!November 5, 2012
Pengpeng Li received the ChicagoConsular Corps Scholarship this year. The Office of International Affairs will be hosting
the Chicago Consular Corps Award Ceremony to honor the recipients and the Chicago Consular Corps for their generous donation.
The Chicago Consular Corps is composed of Heads of Mission representing 80 countries from all around the world. Chicago is proud to be home to one of the largest diplomatic communities in the United States. The diplomats representing their countries work to facilitate and enhance the relationships between their respective countries and the states that comprise their jurisdiction, specifically here in the Midwest.
My graduate experience in the UIC Department of Public Administration prepared me for my role in higher education as well as equipped me with the tools necessary to lead change and innovative management in other government and nonprofit organizations. The blend of current theory and applied knowledge is a strength of the UIC curriculum. The faculty are leaders in public administration research and engage students in thoughtful dialogue and challenging projects. The administrative staff is very encouraging and offers great support and service to students.
