On July 26, 2019, the Office of International and Executive Programs (OIEP) organized a joint graduation ceremony in honor of student participants in the "UMD-Beijing Normal University (BNU) International Summer Workshops 2020" and the "UMD-Jilin University (JLU) International Summer Workshops 2020." 

Following congratulatory remarks delivered by Dean Gregory Ball (of the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences, or BSOS), Associate Dean Wayne McIntosh (BSOS), Principal Dean Mengxue Li (BSOS), and UMD faculty members who served as workshop instructors, BNU and JLU faculty and students took the floor to thank BSOS and OIEP, reflect on their workshop experiences, and share hope for future cooperation. 

Each workshop participant received a certificate of completion from Dean Ball and had the opportunity to pose for a photograph with him and Associate Dean McIntosh.  After the awarding of certificates, the proceedings moved into a more informal phase in the form of a luncheon reception.
