In January 2016 Georgetown launched an Initiative for US-China Dialogue on Global Issues.

The history of Georgetown University’s engagement with China can be traced back to the late nineteenth century, when Georgetown alumnus Charles Denby (LL.D. '85) served as the United States Minister to China from 1885 to 1898. Over the last few decades, partnerships with prestigious Chinese institutions have been established to support faculty and student exchange and research, to engage in high-level dialogues, and to provide training for Chinese officials and executives. On Georgetown’s campus, Chinese nationals form the largest international student and scholar population. Scholars from across schools and disciplines study the history, culture, and contemporary policy issues related to China, and the Asian Studies Program in the School of Foreign Service is home to a National Resource Center on East Asia. Georgetown study abroad programs in China go beyond language studies to include undergraduate scientific research programs and graduate programs in business, public policy, law, and medicine.

Georgetown maintains a representative office in Beijing to support the university’s overall engagement in China. You can also follow Georgetown on the Chinese social media site Weibo.
