Dr. John Bing spent three of the first four years after graduating from college in East Africa, first as a student at Makerere College in Kampala, Uganda, and then teaching for two years in the North of Uganda at Lango College. He has taught at Bennett College in Greensboro, N.C., and the University of Georgia. He has led groups of faculty to teach conversational English in Tianjin, China, on many of the eight trips he has made to China since 1988. He has written needs assessment studies for local organizations, market studies for profit and non-profit companies and participated in several political campaigns. His most popular class at Heidelberg is the annual Fall weekend trip to Chicago to explore the excitement and study the possibilities of urban life.
