ASU partners many of the top Chinese universities, as well as the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Ministry of Science and Technology, to promote language, innovation, business leadership, health sciences, sustainability, tourism and creativity in education at a global scale.
In Phoenix, more than 3,000 Chinese students attend ASU and 9,000 ASU alumni from China carry on a long-standing tradition of close faculty connections and friendships, built through years of collaborative research between ASU and Chinese colleagues.
Although the histories of ASU and China differ, there is a shared belief that universities are transformational forces in society. ASU has experts that dominate in many areas, such as migration, pollution, climate change, energy and health care, all with global ramifications; however, it is the connectivity across borders and cultures that is essential to creating a positive difference in society and developing the problem-solving capacity to face the emerging challenges of the 21st century.
Through our relationships with China and the Chinese people, ASU hopes to promote cross-cultural communication, interdisciplinary study and engagement, educational internationalization, entrepreneurship, and social and economic development locally and abroad.
