Challenge

As China rises to become one of the world's most influential powers, the US and China play increasingly important roles in world politics and global economic policy. However, due to significant linguistic, cultural and political differences, a lack of mutual understanding stands in the way of fruitful cooperation between the US and China. The founders of the China Leadership Summit identified a lack of opportunities to enhance this much needed mutual understanding outside of the classroom.

Solution

The Carolina China Network is an umbrella organization for everything China at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. Through CCN, we aim to bring together students across our campus, other campuses, and international borders with demonstrated interests in Sino-American affairs. Passionate students from around the world are provided with access to leading experts on China and networking opportunities with other students and corporations. We believe promoting dialogue, debates, deep thought, and networking opportunities allows university students to understand China from unique perspectives as they prepare for roles of future leadership in US and China relations.
The China Leadership Summit (CLS) is a three-day conference hosted each spring at Duke University and the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. CLS aims to strengthen collaboration by bringing together undergraduate and graduate students from Duke, UNC, and other top universities with acute and demonstrated interests in US-China affairs. Boasting a DOB only five years ago, CLS already offers a stunning series of esteemed speakers, such as the World Bank's former country director for China.

Long-Term Impact

CLS aims to generate interdisciplinary interest and discussion, create opportunities for research presentation and collaboration, and present networking opportunities to explore potential careers and other China-related opportunities for delegates and attendants. The conference will create a networking platform for student leaders on college campuses to discuss issues related to the growing US-China rivalry and present and collaborate on innovative ideas for tackling future issues.
