The University of Chicago Center in Beijing provides a physical presence to enhance and strengthen the University’s traditionally strong ties to Chinese thought and culture. Building upon more than a century of collaboration between scholars from Chicago and China, the Center in Beijing enables the University to expand existing activities and form new alliances and partnerships with universities, businesses, medical centers, policy groups, government agencies, and cultural organizations in China.About us
Following a relatively inactive year, the University of Chicago Center in Beijing welcomed UChicago college students with a guided tour activity at the Forbidden City on November 13. As many students choose to take their classes online this quarter, the Center in Beijing will be organizing different activities for Beijing-based undergraduate students to connect and get to know each other, building a small college community in Beijing.
