Kwek delivered opening remarks, followed by an overview of the ELI program by Timothy Smith, Ph.D., chair of the Department of English. Tony Lei Tong, associate director of the Office of Career Services and Alumni Relations, and Beverly Butcher, Ph.D., director of the NYIT Center for Humanities and Culture at Nanjing University of Posts and Telecommunications (NUPT), introduced students to the functions and activities organized by their respective departments.
