About the Wisconsin China Initiative 

Recognizing the importance of China to the economic and political future of Wisconsin and the United States, the Division of International Studies in 2007 convened an exceptional group of faculty, alumni, and leaders in business and government to bolster research and teaching about China, to create new partnerships between Chinese higher education institutions and the UW-Madison, and to develop plans for strategic engagements between China and the State of Wisconsin.

The goals of the China Initiative are to:

  • Build an efffective platform for UW engagement with the China region

  • Serve the Wisconsin Idea by disseminating knowledge beyond the classroom

  • Partner strategically with government and businss groups across the Upper Midwest

  • Deepen and expand education and research about China
