Students of all disciplines will have the chance to learn about China’s culture and growing global influence during the second annual BYU China Conference on September 24. They will be able to network with professionals and learn more about the benefits of China’s important international role.
“It’s a place where students who are interested in Chinese culture and background [are] able to get together and network with each other,” said Young Limpanasriphong, co-president of the BYU China Conference.
The one-day conference, run by BYU students and sponsored by the David O. McKay School of Education, the Kennedy Center, and others, will take place in the Hinckley Center on BYU campus.
As part of two sessions, speakers will share their work experience in China and discuss career and educational opportunities available to students there. This year’s conference includes world-renowned professionals such as Noble Coker, former vice president and CIO of Hong Kong Disneyland; Casey Williams, Academy Award–winning filmmaker; and Cui Yong Yuan, a top Chinese television personality.
“One thing I want to emphasize is that the BYU China Conference is not a conference that focuses on one discipline—it is a multi-disciplinary conference,” said Peter Chan, faculty advisor to the conference. “We draw [from] a lot of different experts and let them share their experiences.”
In addition to the sessions, attendees will have the opportunity to ask speakers questions during a panel discussion.
