View as: Print Mobile App Share:

The MIT-Greater China Strategy Working Group has released a report setting forth guidelines and recommendations for the future of MIT's relationship with mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. The Working Group was chaired by Victor Zue, Professor of EECS and Director of CSAIL.

MIT has raised funding for a new chair in study of Chinese culture, as well as provided the Global Seed Fund in conjunction with MIT International Science and Technology Initiatives to send students abroad. "We want this all to be a collaborative effort and to interact with as many top universities as we can, as well as working with people outside of academia," says Associate Provost Philip S. Khoury.

MIT's relationship with China dates back to 1876, when the Chinese government sent students to MIT. The relationship has continued for over a century as students and professors have spent time learning and working in both countries.
