In this article I reflect on my learning experiences with Kennesaw State University’s Year of Romania Faculty Development Community. The yearlong program, including a two-week trip to Romania, contributed a great deal to my professional and personal growth. I have since incorporated Romanian contents into my cross-cultural psychology class to enhance the student’s learning experience. In observing contemporary Romanian society, I make references to China and briefly discuss similarities and differences during each country’s transition to a market economy.
