The U.S.-China Center for Education and Culture Center is an international initiative of Vanderbilt University in collaboration with South China Normal University (SCNU) and Sun Yat-Sen University (SYSU), located in Guangzhou, Guangdong Province, China. The Center’s goal is to connect American education and culture to China’s Pearl River Delta, the most economically dynamic region in the country. The key audiences are students and faculty at the two partnering universities; local K-12 public and private school teachers and administrators in need of professional development; and government and non-profit entities engaged in the preservation and presentation of cultural assets.
