Hopkins-Nanjing Program Returns to China
Hopkins-Nanjing Center for Chinese and American Studies
will return to its permanent location in Nanjing for the
spring semester. The announcement was made last week by the
Johns Hopkins School of
Advanced International Studies and Nanjing University
in Nanjing, China.
As a precaution against severe acute respiratory
syndrome, the two universities held the center's fall
semester classes at the East-West Center in Honolulu rather
than in Nanjing. The center's Chinese students and faculty
joined their American and third-country colleagues and
roommates in Hawaii for four months.
"Despite the relocation, the work of the center this
fall has been very successful," said Kathryn Mohrman,
executive director of the Hopkins-Nanjing Center's
Washington Program Office. "For the Chinese students in
particular, the Hawaii semester provided a glimpse into
American life that would otherwise have been unavailable to
them. We are all eager, however, to return to China because
Nanjing is our home base. We look forward as well to
renewing our long-standing partnership with Nanjing
University in providing the unique academic experience that
has been the hallmark of the center for nearly two
The spring semester will begin in early March, after
the Chinese New Year. The 78 students and 14 faculty
members who spent the fall at the East-West Center have
started departing Hawaii for China.
