In June 2016, 40 University of Chicago students traveled to China to participate in the 4th year of the Wanxiang Ambassador Fellows Program. The program is focused on professional development and is co-organized by the Office of Career Advancement and the Wanxiang Corporation.

During their first week, students attended a week-long Green Energy Conference held at The University of Chicago Center in Beijing. The Conference attendees had an opportunity to learn about many aspects of green energy in China, including the renewable energy industry, the hydrogen economy, green building development, and much more.

While in Beijing, students also got the chance to see some of the cultural sites of the city. They climbed the Great Wall and visited the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square. After the Beijing Conference the students continued onto the City of Hangzhou for the remainder of the program.
