The Stanford Center at Peking University (SCPKU) is the university’s headquarters for faculty and students engaged in research, teaching, training and outreach activities in China. As the first U.S. university to have a permanent, dedicated structure on a Chinese university campus, Stanford breaks new ground in U.S.-Sino cooperation.  SCPKU is located on the Peking University campus in Beijing's Haidian District, which is known for its rich intellectual community including top universities, research academies and government agencies. The 3400 square meter center is designed as a resource for the entire Stanford community, providing collaborative spaces, offices and support services to facilitate the work of scholars and programs. SCPKU is anchored by several well-established Stanford programs, including the Bing Overseas Studies Program, and plays host to many high-profile Stanford-sponsored international conferences and workshops.

SCPKU is a focal point for building academic and educational networks throughout East Asia, bringing together established researchers and a new generation of young scholars to create a vibrant and dynamic hub of intellectual exchange and collaboration.
