On Common Ground 2006 seeks to provide the opportunity for outstanding American and Chinese students to live, work, and learn together. Through these interactions, these future American and Chinese leaders will gain a better understanding of one another, both culturally and personally. They will have the chance to share ideas, experiences, and perspectives.
In becoming a part of our enduring cross-Pacific alumni network our delegates build a foundation of mutual understanding that they may bring into their future careers. This network is established on the basis of close personal bonds amongst delegates, FACES organizers, and mentors and is one of the measures that FACES believes will ultimately strengthen U.S.-China relations.
