TU Engages in Cultural Exchange
The University of Tulsa, Gilcrease Museum and Daming Palace Academy from Shannxi, China recently signed an agreement to create a cultural and educational exchange between TU and the Academy.
The Daming Palace Academy Heritage Park is a $1.76 billion project to preserve the imperial palace of the Tang Dynasty (618-907).
