      During October 9-13, 2016, Dr. Patrick J. MURPHY, DePaul University Professor of Management and Entrepreneurship and Mr. Bruce R. LEECH, Executive Director of DePaul University Coleman Entrepreneurship Center visited Guizhou University. Dr. Nancy Zhang, Dean of College of International Education and Dr. Kejian Jin, Vice Chair of College of Foreign Languages of Guizhou University welcomed the guests and continued discussions regarding the scheduled March 2017 international business seminar trip for DePaul students in Guizhou following Dr. Patrick's last visit in July 2016. Professor Wei Yang, Vice Chair of Guizhou University met with the delegates and shared ideas on intercollegiate collaborations in the area of entrepreneurship education and on the planning of an international student entrepreneurship competition proposed by DePaul University.

       On October 10, Dr. Patrick and Mr. Bruce visited Guizhou Provincial Big Data Research Institute established at Guizhou University, the Qian Long Maker Space and Guizhou University Entrepreneurship Center, and fruitful talks were carried out between the guests and the Guizhou University officials, laying a good foundation for cooperation between the entrepreneurship centers of the two universities. Accompanied by Guizhou University staff, the guests also paid a visit to the Guizhou Big Data Industry Application Exhibition Center and the Guiyang Google office in Jinyang High-tech Zone, and examined a wider picture of the big data industry and entrepreneurship development status quo in Guizhou Province. On October 11 and 12, the delegates took an excursion to the Danzhai County in the Qiandongnan Ethnic Prefecture of Guizhou for site survey and experience in person the unsophisticated  ethnic cultures of the Miao people in Danzhai. The visit happened to coincide with an important Miao celebration and the guests also went to appreciate the Miao wax printing enterprise, the techniques of traditional Miao birdcage making, and a social enterprise in Shiqiao Village for paper making using ancient techniques. The Shiqiao paper-making workshop is also a preserved site in the first batch of China's intangible cultural heritage.

    This was the third time for Professor Patrick to visit Guizhou University in the past two years, and it works out a mechanism for bilateral cooperation between the entrepreneurship centers of DePaul University and Guizhou University. This visit also fulfilled the pre-trip site inspection for the March 2017 international business seminar trip for DePaul students. The scenic natural landscapes, the rich colorful ethnic culture and the grand blueprint of Guizhou's big data industry development left a deep impression on the DePaul University delegates, and both universities have agreed to build a close partnership in the area of student entrepreneurship by drawing on their own advantages and resources to serve the benefits of both universities. Meanwhile, Dr. Patrick and Mr. Bruce were also very much looking forward to the March 2017 seminar trip for DePaul students in Guizhou.
