SCPKU Anchor Programs



Stanford organizations anticipating a sustained presence in China are encouraged to contact the SCPKU team to discuss the wide range of opportunities and benefits available in establishing an SCPKU Anchor Program.  Anchor programs enjoy a productive working environment with Stanford amenities and support from a professional, bilingual staff.  Our offices can also serve as a home base for field research elsewhere in China. Anchor programs have flexible access to faculty offices and student carrels, as well as conference spaces at discounted rates. 


Past and present programs at SCPKU operated by Stanford units:


Asian Liver Center

The Asian Liver Center at Stanford University is the first non-profit organization in the United States that addresses the high incidence of hepatitis B and liver cancer in Asians and Asian Americans. Founded in 1996, the center uses a three-pronged approach towards fighting hepatitis B through outreach and education, advocacy, and research.


Graduate School of Business

The mission of the Graduate School of Business (GSB) is to create ideas that deepen and advance our understanding of management and harness those ideas to develop innovative, principled, and insightful leaders who will change the world.  

GSB offers a part-time Stanford Ignite program at SCPKU.  Stanford Ignite is a certificate program that teaches innovators to formulate, develop, and commercialize their ideas.  Through a combination of in-person instruction as well as live sessions delivered by distance-learning technology, the GSB is able to offer Stanford Ignite around the globe in addition to its campus-based program.  The Beijing program at SCPKU is one of five global programs off-campus.   


Rural Education Action Program

The Rural Education Action Program (REAP) is a Stanford research organization dedicated to discovering the cuases of poverty in rural China, and creative simple, yet effective solutions in education, health and nutrition policy.


Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center

The Walter H. Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center (Shorenstein APARC) is a unique Stanford University institution focused on the interdisciplinary study of contemporary Asia. 


Stanford Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society

The Stanford Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society is a research center for students, scholars, and practitioners to explore and share ideas that create social change.


Stanford China Program

The Stanford China Program (SCP) was formally established in January 2007. An integral component of the Walter H. Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center (Shorenstein APARC), SCP facilitates multidisciplinary, social science-oriented research on contemporary China, with a dual emphasis on basic and policy-relevant research. The program recognizes the singular importance of training new generations of Stanford students for broader and deeper interactions with China. SCP involves students in research projects and workshops, both at Shorenstein APARC and in nascent programs within China.
