Befitting its strategic location on the Pacific Rim, Stanford is home to many of the world's leading scholars on China and Asia. While the University's regional programs are expanding, equally important is the growing interest in China among Stanford faculty and students in the sciences, engineering, medicine, law, business, and education. All of Stanford's schools and research institutes have activities in China, ranging from research to student exchange and study programs. SCPKU will serve as a base of operations for anyone in the Stanford community seeking to advance research or education by spending time in China to pursue fieldwork, coursework or internships; to collaborate with Chinese colleagues; to examine world issues as they play out in China; or to study China, its people, and policies through firsthand experience. This new center will accelerate a two-way flow of people, ideas, research, scholarship and training, beneficial to both China and the United States. Stanford views the Center as the hub of a long-term and deepening presence in Asia, and as a model for possible future presence in other regions of the world.
