Strengthening Cultural Ties

In 2014, the University of Dayton China Institute was awarded a two-year, $100,000 grant by the U.S. Embassy in Beijing to establish the American Culture Center (ACC). The University of Dayton is the only U.S. institution with a standalone American Culture Center. Located inside the University of Dayton China Institute, this center serves as means to build greater understanding among Chinese citizens about American culture, society, government, language, law and economic system. The American Culture Center is only one of 20 cultural centers funded by the U.S. State Department in China.

In addition to promoting cultural awareness and understanding, programs at the American Culture Center at the China Institute seek to include: learning projects by University of Dayton and Chinese students; a cultural immersion program for Chinese students; presentations on American culture and society, support for American students teaching English in Chinese schools; and training programs for Chinese companies on corporate social responsibility, energy efficient manufacturing, and environmental design. The American Culture Center at the University of Dayton China Institute will continue to support the University of Dayton’s globalization through academic, research, and Marianist perspectives.
