Research and Outreach

The U.S.-China Institute creates opportunities for American and Chinese scholars and institutions to collaborate on research projects and academic programs through video conferences, online discussions, co-teaching, and site visits.

China Seminar Series: Every month during the school year, a prominent China scholar or expert is invited to Bryant to share his or her areas of expertise. The seminars are free and open to students, faculty, staff, and the general public.

Language Events: In collaboration with Bryant's Modern Language Department, the U.S.-China Institute provides tutorial assistance, resources, events, and an immersion environment to make Chinese language learning relevant, effective, and fun for students.
