China, the Academy, and the American National Interest

National Association of Scholars

Many American universities and academics have developed alarmingly close ties to the Chinese government and the state arms of the Chinese Communist Party. High-profile arrests of prominent U.S. academics have taken place across the country when information surfaced that they were taking millions of dollars in under-the-table funding from China. This raises urgent questions surrounding higher education and American national security.

From the Thousand Talents Plan, which woos American academics with promises of funding in exchange for sensitive research, to Confucius Institutes, which present a sanitized view of the Chinese government, China has staked a claim on American higher education.

Join the National Association of Scholars for an event on June 4th at 2pm EST, where you will hear from a group of experts on this important issue in American higher education.
