CCCI Course Development Fund

Lecture series attached to courses on contemporary China

At the end of the 2018-19 academic year EAP restructured the CCCI lecture series so that it would be attached to a different EAP-affiliated faculty course each semester. This restructure gives faculty and their students the opportunity to have two to four guest speakers come to Cornell and give high-profile public lectures on topics related to contemporary China in the world.

In the first two years of the Cornell Contemporary China Initiative, the East Asia Program provided course development grants to allow faculty to develop new courses at Cornell on issues of contemporary China, courses that would become a regular part of the Cornell curriculum. Through this and other programs, Cornell has become one of the leading universities in the study of contemporary China.

The competition of the Cornell Contemporary China Initiative Course Development Fund for faculty is currently closed.

The East Asia Program intends to invest a significant amount of resources over the next few years in strengthening its commitment to Cornell’s undergraduate education, particularly in the area of international studies. The development of new courses on contemporary China is a fundamental component of the newly established Cornell Contemporary China Initiative. Through this fund, the CCCI intends to support Cornell faculty with a one-time stipend to develop new undergraduate courses to be offered on a regular basis. The purpose of this funding is to systematically encourage and facilitate the creation of such new courses in accordance with students' current needs and interests.
