China, the world’s most populous nation, is going through what is perhaps the greatest social transformation in human history. China’s explosive growth and expanding global influence and the United States’ recent “pivot” toward Asia make dialogue and communication between the people of the two nations more important than ever. Hoping to continue a discussion that will bring about a greater understanding of these two cultures and a deeper friendship between the people of each nation, UMass Boston's Office of International and Transnational Affairs is hosting a forum that will foster and promote open discussion.

UMass Boston faculty, students, and administrators who have been to China will discuss their experiences in China and invite you to share your thoughts with the university community.
