Chinese Studies Activities & Events

Chinese Studies is a young and small, but vibrant and exciting program at Utah Valley University. It is maybe one of the most active small units in the university, collaborating with colleagues and programs all over the university.

You can join the activities of Chinese Studies already on this website. If you choose the menu item "activities", you can choose Events, blog, Mailinglist, conferences and student clubs. You can also leave us feedback on the feedback form.

You can also check out the diverse study opportunities under menu title "study", research under "research" or career opportunities under "China".

You may also simply come and join the bi-weekly Chinese Lunch, where we speak Chinese at lunch.
