IAS Director and History Professor Ann Waltner helps the University of Minnesota China Center celebrate 100 years of international exchange.

The first Chinese students, Pan Wen Huen, Pan Wen Ping, and Kwong Yih Kum, enrolled at the University in 1914. Today, the University hosts more than 2,500 students and 500 faculty and scholars from China each year, while its American students are studying in more than 15 study abroad and exchange programs in greater numbers each year.

China 100 is a yearlong celebration honoring the first students from China and the wealth of connections that have come since. This celebration will honor the past and take a look forward at the engagement between the University of Minnesota and China.

With over 30 strategic partnerships with Chinese universities, the University’s world-renowned faculty works with Chinese researchers to address some of the world’s most pressing problems. As one of the first universities to resume academic exchanges with China in 1979, the University of Minnesota hopes to continue its strong commitment to developing more exchange and partnership opportunities with China in the next 100 years.

This talk took place on Tuesday, October 8, at 4:00 pm in the University International Center, Room 101.
