About Us

The USC U.S.-China Institute informs public discussion of the evolving and multidimensional U.S.-China relationship through policy-relevant research, graduate and undergraduate training, and professional development programs for teachers, journalists, and officials. It produces compelling public events, widely-viewed documentary films, and the popular magazines US-China Today and Asia Pacific Arts.
 
USCI was established in 2006 by USC President C.L. "Max" Nikias (then provost). In fall 2011, USCI became part of the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, whose world-class programs include those on public diplomacy, new Chinese media, and economics reporting.

Our Mission

Provost C.L. Max Nikias Announces the Establishment of the USC U.S. - China Institute

USCI is to have university-wide reach and to foster policy-relevant social science research. Innovations in the instructional program and effective public programming are also expected.
 
Like every other sector of American life, universities are getting the “China religion.” Building on a history of Pacific overtures, USC is positioning itself as the go-to institution for research on the symbiotic relationship between “us” and “them.”
 
 
 
The Executive Committee, drawn from faculty across the university, helps to determine institute policies and priorities and plan conferences and other activities. Members of the committee serve with other faculty on the institute's various research funding committees.
 
Some of the top specialists on U.S.-China ties and trends in contemporary China serve on the institute's board of scholars. These distinguished individuals offer advice on a number of matters from research and event agendas to faculty recruitment.
