Carole Peterson, member, Minneapolis university rotary club

China Snapshot: Past, Present, Future


Carole Peterson has been a member of the Minneapolis University Rotary Club since 2013. Her Rotary history goes back to the ‘70s when she was awarded an “ambassador of goodwill” fellowship by Rotary International for a year of study at the University of Kiel, West Germany. Her career includes urban and regional planning with the Metropolitan Council of the Twin Cities and consulting and organizational development with several Twin Cities health care organizations. 

Rotary inspired a love of travel in all parts of the world for Carole. She will be speaking on her recent travels to China, a nation of stunning contrasts—from ancient rural civilizations to ultra-modern megacities.  She will include personal stories and photography with a description of the rapidly modernizing nation and emerging world super-power.
