My Asia interests are mainly teaching.  Since 2008 I have directed the CSU-FTU Vietnam Economics Curriculum Program, and have taught annually in Hanoi and have facilitated the transfer to CSU of about 220 FTU-Vietnam students.  I also have had roles with Semester at Sea whose itineraries normally involve several Asian countries.
