Peking University, often referred to as “China’s Harvard,” is recognized as one of the top institutions of higher education in China.
Since the signing of a cooperative agreement between UD's College of Arts and Sciences and Peking University’s National Commission on Classics Editing and Research in 2010, the partnership has sought to “establish active scholarly linkages and create the long-term foundation for collaboration among the academic disciplines” the two institutions share.
UD and Peking University now have joint projects under way in areas ranging from Chinese culture to a Global Educational Exchange Initiative (GLOBEX) in engineering.
