April 28, 2010 | Posted by Chris
The University of Chicago plans to open a major new research facility in Beijing this fall, which will facilitate exchange between students and scholars in both the midwestern city and China, according to CBS Chicago. UChicago students and faculty that are working in China will benefit most from the new center, in addition to students and faculty from a wide range of Chinese institutions. It is set to open on September 15 during a ceremony attended by a number of the school's leading scholars and will focus on three areas of inquiry: business, economics and policy; science, medicine and public health; and culture, society and the arts. Based in Beijing's Haidian District, the new facility also represents the University of Chicago's latest push to increase its international reach, which already includes centers in Paris, Singapore, and Luxor, Egypt.
