The US-China Student Forum is going on now on UD campus, with the participation of ten students from China, including five students from the East China Normal University and five from Xiamen University, and ten UD students.
The forum aims to advance cross-cultural cooperation, increase understanding and inclusiveness, and promote exchanges between students in both countries. The ultimate objective is to initiate dialogue across the Chinese and American cultures and deepen friendship between the two great countries.
Theme of the two-week program from April 28 to May 9 this year is Cross-Cultural Perspectives on the Humanities. By studying a variety of topics of social and cultural significance, the forum discusses and debates the status of the humanities in the educational systems in China and the U.S., the importance of humanistic study in our increasingly technological workplaces, and the role of humanities education in an open society.
Participants will use hashtag #USChinaSF to post on Instagam.
