The U.S.-China Student-to-Student Dialogue is a virtual exchange program designed to promote dialogue on critical issues in the U.S.-China relationship between students at Georgetown University and various Chinese universities.
The inaugural cohort of 15 Georgetown students participated in three virtual dialogues with students from Fudan University, Peking University, and Zhejiang University during the spring 2021 semester.
In fall 2021 a second cohort of 12 Georgetown students held a month-long dialogue with students from Peking University. During a series of Zoom meetings, participants exchanged their perspectives on global governance and U.S.-China relations; they also shared their experiences as citizens living in the globalized world.
During spring 2022 the initiative explored additional ways of helping students engage in virtual exchange. A successful third season of the U.S.-China Student-to-Student Dialogue was held online, bringing students from Georgetown and Fudan University together for candid discussions around topics including global governance and people-to-people diplomacy.
In fall 2022 student groups from Georgetown and Peking University met virtually in a series of three meetings, exploring topics on global development and the role of U.S. and China in advancing global development.
