About IAPP China
"Internationalization is now part of our University strategic plan."
-Jacksonville State University
According to Open Doors, China continues to rank number one in sending student to the U.S. and is in the top 10 countries for receiving U.S. students. In 2009, President Obama launched the 100,000 Strong Initiative, a public-private challenge to see 100,000 Americans study in China over the next four years, marking the importance of U.S.-China relations and the critical role that education can play in this dialogue. In this context, U.S.-China institutional partnerships have played a major role in increasing student and scholar flow, and have added to the academic and cultural enrichment of higher education institutions in both countries. The 2011 IAPP China program engaged 10 institutions in developing a comprehensive partnership strategy, and included a study tour to Bejing, Wuhan, and Chongqing. IAPP China is not offered in the current IAPP cycle.
