Introduction

With the Tianjin Juilliard School as the backdrop and a significant project of the people to people exchange between the U.S. and China, the program will celebrate the success of higher education partnerships between the U.S. and China revisiting the history, current opportunities and discuss the future of the education ties between the two countries. At a micro level, discussions will also focus on how U.S. higher education institutions' China presence helps enhance their brands at home, create opportunities for their facility and staff, and bring their teaching excellence and experience to Chinese students.
