Wang is involved deeply in on- and off-campus activities related to internationalization for education.  He has actively worked with the OIP to bring many Chinese scholars and students to JMU over the years.  He has developed close relationships with Chinese scholars at JMU and EMU and supported them on a regular basis.  Finally, he has organized many activities for the local Chinese community and for Chinese professionals in Northern Virginia, Washington, DC, and Maryland.
