Founded in 1926 by Chinese educators Hu Shi and K.P. Wen and American scholars John Dewey and Paul Monroe, China Institute is the oldest bicultural, non-profit organization in America to focus exclusively on China. Its mission is to advance a deeper understanding of China through programs in education, culture, art, and business.

China Institute shares the J. Luce Foundation’s dedication to support young global leadership. Its “U.S.-China New Leaders Philanthropy Initiative” provides a platform for young entrepreneurs, tech experts, and emerging philanthropists to discuss philanthropy, social justice issues and to seek solutions for global challenges, from poverty to healthcare and environment.

In April 2019, China Institute’s New Leaders Council Workshops brought together American and Chinese change makers in philanthropy, business, entrepreneurship, social innovation, and culture to explore challenges and opportunities in sustainable business, impact investing, and social innovation, through activities and intensive dialogue.
