BXAI Summer Program 2017 at Taiwan University
The BXAI Summer Program (SP) 2017 was held from July 31 to August 16, 2017 at Taiwan University’s campuses in Taipei and Xitou Nature Education Area. Bringing together 117 students from our 16 partner universities, the SP offered a rich curriculum that centered on the theme of “Sustainability and Entrepreneurship” through panel presentations, debates, hands-on activities, and excursions. Scholars enjoyed hearing from and interacting with over 35 guest speakers while engaging with fellow scholars about important issues affecting Asia today.
At Xitou, scholars spent one week learning about the environment and sustainability through fun experiential activities. After returning to Taipei, they delved into more specific topics of interest, honed their soft skills at various workshops, and attended educational visits. The SP wrapped up with final group presentations from scholars, the first Bai Xian Alumni Initiative Award pitch session, and a celebratory closing ceremony and gala dinner.
