This week and next, 23 Chinese university leaders are on campus to participate in the Advanced University Leadership Program.

The program, established in 2004 in close partnership with China’s Ministry of Education, provides an opportunity for Chinese university leaders to gain an in-depth look at the administrative practices and education philosophies of Yale and of American universities in general. Program activities include a combination of discussions, site visits, and case studies to illustrate the goals and operations of important administrative functions at leading U.S. research universities like Yale and the University of Connecticut, giving participants an opportunity to consider alternative models and approaches that may be applied to and benefit world-class Chinese universities.
