Recently, Princeton University's Office of Development interviewed students from the 2016 Global Seminar in China.  15 Princeton undergraduates, on a six-week Global Seminar, explored contemporary Chinese society, including its burgeoning diversity, rapid change, growing rural-urban divide, and increasing wealth and social disparities.  Professor Yu Xie, Princeton’s Bert G. Kerstetter ’66 University Professor of Sociology and the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies, taught the Global Seminar and exposed the students to many aspects of Chinese society.  You can read the full story here:
