Int'l Strategic Plan: China
UNC President Tom Ross and eight members of the UNC Board of Governors traveled to China to gain insight into whether and how the University might meaningfully increase its engagement with the world’s most populous nation.
 
The delegation returned convinced that UNC needed a thoughtful strategy to guide its work with China. They asked that we explore and report on cost-effective, high-leverage approaches that would increase connections between UNC and China: through increased UNC student and faculty research, study and programming there; through creative use of technology to boost virtual communication and learning; and through expanded efforts to recruit Chinese students to study on our campuses. 
 
This report takes a close look at how UNC is currently engaging with China, and at how UNC as a system and as a collection of individual campuses with different missions might become more effective in connecting to China going forward.
