The US-China Student Forum

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.
