On 1 June, a delegation of five scholars led by Camilla Benbow, Dean of the Peabody College of Education of Vanderbilt University, visited Guangzhou and paid a visit to South China Normal University (SCNU). The Peabody School of Education has a long-standing reputation of ranking among the American top 10 education institutes, and being the Number One for five consecutive years. Peabody College boasts of world-class teaching resources, and currently offers 16 MA programs, 6 doctoral programs, and 3 doctoral programs in education. According to the ranking of the U.S. News & World Report, 8 majors of the Peabody School of Education rank among the Top 10 on the list. SCNU has maintained a long-term and stable cooperative relationship with Vanderbilt University. Established in November 2005 by signing a joint cooperation agreement among the three parties, namely SCNU, Vanderbilt University and Nashville Public School, Tennessee, the “Educational Leadership Learning Exchange” (ELLE) program has been the only two-way exchange program for Sino-US primary and secondary school principals for 12 consecutive years in China.
