Carolina China Network

The Carolina China Network is an umbrella organization for everything China at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. Through CCN, we aim to bring together students across our campus, other campuses, and international borders with demonstrated interests in Sino-American affairs. Passionate students from around the world are provided with access to leading experts on China and networking opportunities with other students and corporations. We believe promoting dialogue, debates, deep thought, and networking opportunities allows university students to understand China from unique perspectives as they prepare for roles of future leadership in US and China relations.

The 2015 conference speakers have been finalized and the schedule is set, so please check out the website for more details: http://www.dukeunccls.com/.

The China Leadership Summit has been successfully bringing together top students from around the US and China who have the capacity to lead in the field of Sino-US relations. The purpose of the conference is to educate these students on pressing issues pertaining to Sino-US relations and to provide a platform for building connections among the students and speakers. Your past donations have allowed us to make significant advancements to the conference each year, and we are looking forward to hosting another amazing conference this year.

We also have a new Global Giving campaign specifically for the 2015 China Leadership Summit.

The 2015 conference will be held over the weekend of February 20-22, and the 2015 theme has been announced: The Role of China in the Global Order. We have been planning hard and looking forward to hosting another successful conference this year.

Two Weeks Until Duke-UNC CLS!

Hello supporters!

14 days, 1 hour, and 49 minutes remain until it. 100 student delegates hailing from 23 universities will descend upon North Carolina for it.  13 award-winning journalists, analysts, professors, and founders will speak at it.  

What is this it being referenced?

Duke and UNC's annual China Leadership Summit!

Our student leadership team has invested more than seven months into designing the conference and arranging each logistical detail.  In the process, we have played on each others' strengths and consumed enough dumplings to open a small restaurant.  You may ask what has been most challenging, and our unanimous reply is this: making delegate decisions.

Interest in China has been expanding given the country's unprecedented economic growth, and universities are offering incredible programs to meet the popular demand.  Duke-UNC China Leadership Summit has emerged as a notable US-China relations conference for students to attend in the Southeast, and this year we received 190 applications, our highest total to date.  Not only did the conference generate more applicants than ever before, but we also witnessed the competitive level of talent exhibited by students rise with each new application that we opened!  Tough hours of deliberation at last resulted in the applicant pool being wittled down by 47%.  We are thoroughly pleased with the high quality of the 2014 CLS delegates. 

And now, two weeks away, we are ready.

We advanced because of your generosity in donating to this conference, and we can't wait to report to you what comes out of the Duke-UNC China Leadership Summit in a few weeks!

Thank you so, so much.
