The Carolina China Network was created to fill a void felt by numerous UNC students as the University’s first academically driven Chinese student organization. Through CCN, we aim to bring together students across campus with demonstrated interests in Sino-American affairs. CCN aims to function as an umbrella organization for China related events, debates, and research opportunities. Currently, UNC has a Chinese and Chinese-American student organization and an Asian student organization that primarily sponsor social and cultural events. CCN provides all students interested in US-China affairs opportunities for extracurricular involvement primarily in English.
