SUNY Cobleskill Professors Teach Landscape Management in Shanghai

SUNY Cobleskill professors Christina Trees and Adam Wild are in Shanghai, China this summer teaching at a partnership college, Shanghai Urban Management College (SUMC), to help build bridges between SUMC and SUNY Cobleskill.

Trees and Wild are spending four weeks in Shanghai teaching a course in Landscape Contracts and Landscape Management as part of an international partnership between SUNY Cobleskill and SUMC. The partnership creates opportunities for SUNY Cobleskill professors to spend four weeks in Shanghai teaching classes in the International Exchange School Landscape Program.

Students who have completed the SUMC International Landscape Program earn credits from SUNY Cobleskill and have the opportunity to transfer to SUNY Cobleskill to complete a bachelor degree in the Plant Science Program on campus.
