In light of the sudden surge of COVID-19 cases due to the Omicron variant across China, especially, in Shanghai and Shenzhen and the subsequent drastic measures that the Chinese government has taken to contain the pandemic, the so called “dynamic zeroing” policy, we want to assure our students, faculty and alumni that the Center in Beijing will follow the guideline and policies issued by the Beijing municipal government, as well as related guidelines by the property management. The Center remains open to the public and general use. Ever since August, 2020, the Center has had limited access and resumed normal operation, we have helped students, faculty, alumni and our partners in providing office, meeting and general gathering spaces and has also held in-person events. We plan to have our Chicago Scholars series of lectures as in-person events as we possibly can. During the summer, we will invite families of newly admitted College students come to the Center, as part of our tradition, to have a reception and the Alumni Club will also host a Send-Off party for the new students later in the summer. If you need to use the Center for your study, research and discussion, please reach out to David at: email@example.com.
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
