California State University has reached an agreement with Peking University, based in the People's Republic of China, for an academic exchange of each institution's educational resources to develop curriculum and instructional services; create programs that will encourage student, faculty and staff exchange; and conduct joint activities and projects to exchange information and research capabilities.

The first project will bring faculty from CSU and Peking University together to collaborate in creating a Professional Development Center for governmental administrators, and to develop a Master's in Public Administration (MPA) curriculum that will be taught at Peking University. Both institutions are expecting similar programs to be developed and implemented over the renewable five-year period of its partnership.

The CSU Office of Global Partnership Development and the Peking University Office of International Relations will coordinate the ongoing activities stipulated in the academic exchange.

The California State University is the largest four-year university system in the country. More than 41,500 faculty and staff teach and serve more than 370,000 students on 23 CSU campuses and six off-campus centers extending from Humboldt in the north and San Diego in the south. Annually, about half the bachelor's degrees and a third of the master's degrees awarded in California are from the CSU.
