About Us

From the Director

“The changes underway in China, the world’s most populous country, are unprecedented in modern history. Its emerging influences on economics, politics, societal and cultural changes, humanities, and scientific research are mesmerizing. Universities are the premier institutions for helping us understand and respond to these developments, and to take advantage of the best possibilities. NYU is launching China House to ensure it has a significant role in this momentous process.”
