Campus Champion

While he praises SUNY Cortland’s fine atmosphere and camaraderie, the College applauds the service of this dedicated assistant professor of political science. In his two short years on staff, Lu-Chung “Dennis” Weng has helped established a Taiwanese SUNY Cortland experience and a one-of-a-kind China and Taiwan Summer Study Abroad Program. “Bringing students from Taiwan to SUNY Cortland will help our students better understand the value of international relations with Asia,” he said. Building on his successes in organizing speaker events and exchanges, we’ll stay tuned as this forward-thinking professor focuses his energy on diversity and inclusion efforts and foreign teacher initiatives.
