Springfield College Professor of Social Work Dr. Joseph Wronka recently presented a keynote address and lecture at the Chinese University of Political Science and Law in China.

Wronka, a long-standing professor of the Springfield College Department of Graduate Social Work, was invited to give a keynote address at the International Conference on Natural Law, Human Rights, and Traditional Chinese Culture, which was jointly sponsored by the Chinese University of Political Science and Law (CUPL) and the Institute of Human Rights in Beijing.

“I think it was a very important discussion given that much of public discourse these days is taken up with the human rights situation in China,” said Wronka. “Members of the United States Embassy attended one of my talks and they told me how happy they were that they had invited me as an American to the conference. Overall, it was rather a good and fruitful experience.”
