Columbia University and Committee of 100 to Commence Joint Research on the Economic and Sociopolitical Situation of Today’s Chinese American Population

Columbia University’s School of Social Work, one of the world’s leading research universities and oldest schools of social work, and Committee of 100, a non-profit membership organization of prominent Chinese Americans, today announced they are commencing joint research on the economic and sociopolitical condition of today’s Chinese American population. The announcement comes on the heels of national Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, where “our nation recognizes the innumerable contributions, vibrant cultures, and rich heritage of Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders.” 

On April 15, 2022, the China Center for Social Policy hosted a career planning panel of Columbia School of Social Work (CSSW) alumni and current Chinese international students to share their experiences in pursuing Ph.D. programs and applying for jobs in both the US and China. Panelists included alumni Qin Sun, Yingning Wang, and Shu Zeng, and current student Haizhen Li. Second-year master’s student Hanna Wang served as the moderator.

The Columbia China Center for Social Policy is proud to celebrate the graduation of six Center fellows this May. We applaud the graduates’ perseverance, breakthroughs, and many achievements. Congratulations and best wishes!
