U.S. - China Education Trust - Northeast Normal University

Center for American Culture

 


Summary

The U.S. - China Education Trust (USCET) is unique among organizations involved in US-China relations in its focus on serving China's scholars, professionals and future leaders with resources in concert with their own institutions. USCET projects build confidence, basic understanding, and trust between China and the United States through support for American Studies, Media Education, and American Governance programs at China's leading academic and policy institutions. USCET helps China's next-generation leaders understand American society in the context of the political, cultural, and economic forces that have given rise to American and its values.

 

The USCET and Northeast Normal University Center for American Culture provides a space to create a community and interactions that allow Chinese to better understand the United States, its culture, society, government, language, law, economic system and values. The center coordinates various programs that will make the most of the expertise and talents of the American expatriate community residing in China and Asia, as well as visits to China by American thought leaders, scholars, journalists, authors and others who can effectively communicate various aspects of U.S. experience to the Chinese public.
