Connecting the Next Generation of Leaders in
U.S.-China Exchange

Founded in 2001, the Forum for American/Chinese Exchange at Stanford (FACES) is dedicated to promoting dialogue and foster long-lasting relationships among future leaders in U.S.-China affairs. Every year, our two-part summit in the United States and China brings together young leaders and accomplished speakers to discuss the future of the two countries.
