Liberal Arts & Sciences Innovation in China: Six Recommendations to Shape the Future 

This issue is a collaboration between CIHE and Duke Kunshan University (DKU), a joint venture of Duke University and Wuhan University. It is written by Kara Godwin, CIHE Research Fellow, and Noah Pickus, Dean of Undergraduate Curricular Affairs and Faculty Development at Duke Kunshan University and Associate Provost at Duke University.

This Perspective addresses the obstacles and opportunities for innovative liberal arts and sciences initiatives in China by providing six key recommendations for the future. It builds on a meeting from June 2017 when twenty-six university leaders and scholars met at DKU to assess the significant growth in new liberal arts and sciences practices that are emerging as key factors in China’s educational landscape. An appendix also includes four background papers from that meeting.
