UMass in China

"The goal is clear and simple: to build a platform in China for the benefit of students and faculty members, as well as to provide services and assistance to local businesses and communities."

The UMass China strategy is driven by several complementary goals:

  • To prepare UMass students for life in an interdependent and highly complex world, and specifically to bring greater awareness and understanding of China to the University's students, faculty, staff and associates;
  • To serve the broader Massachusetts community in facing the multiple challenges of globalization;
  • To provide a reliable, culturally-sensitive, knowledge base for the Massachusetts business and public sectors regarding China and to build a China-based platform to advance those interests in China;
  • To develop capacities and relationships that will allow our State's business interests to maximize their potential in the China market;

The University of Massachusetts China Institute oversees a range of exciting partnerships and initiatives underway at the University, including a formal partnership with Tsinghua University. These important relationships have provided UMass with an unmatched opportunity, and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts with a remarkable advantage, in China and reaffirm the University's commitment to making direct, immediate contributions to the broader economic and social development of the Commonwealth.
