Global China Connection

The Organization

Founded in 2008, Global China Connection (GCC) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization for university students of all nationalities looking to engage China’s emergence as an global power. GCC connects future leaders from all nations and assists them in developing the skills and friendships necessary to succeed both in China and internationally.

Whether attending events, hosting delegations, writing research papers, or having a heated discussion over coffee, every interaction between our members connects China and the world, building a network of leaders who will shape the future.

Our Mission

Global China Connection is a student-run organization dedicated to fostering deep and trusting personal relationships among Chinese and non-Chinese university students.


As an independent, non-profit, non-political organization with chapters on college campuses worldwide outside of mainland China, the objective of GCC is to:

  1. Create opportunities for Chinese students and their international counterparts to socialize, learn and work together.
  2. Through events and educational seminars—and the latest Internet, telecommunications and multimedia tools—bring together GCC members for learning, networking and developing future professional opportunities.
  3. Advance international trust and understanding through GCC member and alumni personal and professional relationships.
  4. Promote high ethical standards for GCC members’ academic, professional and personal lives along with a commitment to make the world a better place through lifelong fellowship.
  5. Have fun together.
