The American Centers for Cultural Exchange (ACCEX) is a bilateral network of American cultural centers (ACCs) throughout China. These centers are located on university campuses and are jointly managed by American and Chinese Universities. The mission of our network is to create mutual understanding through innovative cultural exchange and academic collaboration. Each ACC has an unique approach to fostering the bilateral relationship through creative programs, outreach activities, exhibits, lectures and performances. The ACCEX network facilitates shared resources, cooperative programs, the exchange of ideas, and funding opportunities. ACCEX members and network supporters convene annually to build a stronger network and bilateral relationship between China and the United States.
