PACS at Peking University
Taking Philanthropic Exploration Global
On the Leading Edge of Philanthropy & Civil Society in China
March 21, 2012 - PACS Executive Director Kim Meredith officially opened an all-new Stanford Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society at Peking University, taking the Center’s groundbreaking work on philanthropy and civil society global.
The new center resides within the new Stanford Center at Peking University (SCPKU). Like the home office on the Stanford campus in Palo Alto, the new Stanford PACS-PKU is a research center for students, scholars and practitioners to explore and share ideas that create social change.
Stanford PACS-PKU will primarily serve Stanford faculty, visiting scholars, postdoctoral scholars, graduate and undergraduate students, and nonprofit and foundation practitioners visiting or conducting research in China. The Center will also host knowledge-sharing events and engage with the Chinese philanthropic community.
To launch Stanford PACS-PKU in Beijing, PACS hosted a series of signature events, including a grand opening presentation on “Historical and Emerging Perspectives on Philanthropy in China” with Steven C. Rockefeller III and Dr. Meng Zhao. Click here to download a PDF of the opening presentation from this event.
