Program History & Accomplishments
The Silk Road to the Future is a dynamic educational and cultural collaboration among leading Chinese and U.S. universities in conjunction with the Legends of China Foundation. Its central purpose is to expose university students, faculty, and staff to a powerful, once-in-a-lifetime international immersion experience. This international immersion program provides the participants an unparalleled opportunity to travel through China so they can meet their Chinese counterparts.
Through experiential learning, the exchange of ideas, and a highly visual historical tour of China’s distinctive cities, all who take part in this Chinese international program gain an invaluable perspective on China. They also gain a significant understanding of the many Chinese cultural and educational practices throughout their trip. In this process, lasting relationships are forged with China and its wonderful, friendly people. Through these relationships, participants truly become the Ambassadors of Peace.
