Summary: This book highlights the experiences of international leaders in liberal arts and science education from around the world as they discuss regional trends and models, with a specific focus on developments in and cooperation with China. Focusing on why this model responds to the twenty-first century requirements for excellence and relevance in undergraduate education, contributors examine if it can be implemented in different contexts and across academic cultures, structures, and traditions. William C. Kirby is T. M. Chang Professor of China Studies at Harvard University, USA, and Spangler Family Professor of Business Administration at the Harvard Business School. Marijk van der Wende is the Dean of Graduate Studies at Utrecht University, the Netherlands.
