The University of Maryland has a wealth of China-related expertise across its schools and colleges. Some of these experts act as advisors to the Office of China Affairs in order to bring different perspectives, relationships, and voices to the wide variety of China initiatives at UMD. These advisors also serve as a sounding board to make sure major decisions are undertaken with an appropriate level of faculty and administrative input.
