Georgetown and China: A Legacy of Dialogue and Engagement
Georgetown University's involvement with China dates back to the second half of the nineteenth century when graduates began to travel to Asia and pursue diplomacy and commerce. Now, in the twenty-first century Georgetown continues to deepen its ties with China through research, teaching, and dialogue around pressing issues in U.S.-China relations and world affairs. The Initiative for U.S.-China Dialogue on Global Issues produced this timeline to highlight Georgetown University's rich history of engagement with China.
