2015 American Centers for Cultural Exchange Conference

June 14 - 16, 2015
Crowne Plaza Hotel, Xi'an, China

The theme for the June 2015 ACCEX conference in Xi’an is “ Cultural Exchange:  US and China, Business and University.” We will focus on cooperation between higher education and the business community in several sessions:

  • A keynote speech by U.S. Ambassador Max Baucus (invited)
  • A panel of top executives of international businesses in Xi’an discussing ways that American Culture Centers and companies can work together for mutual benefit, including ways to prepare students for an increasingly global workforce
  • A panel of HR directors from Xi’an businesses speaking to students about the differences between working for Chinese companies vs. international businesses

In addition, we will hear from ACCEX members on how to take advantage of opportunities funded from the Henry Luce Foundation grant.

We look forward to seeing you in June.

ACCEX Staff Team



We are a network of educators and global leaders committed to educating the next generation of students and citizens about American culture, history, values and beliefs. 



Cultural Exchange

ACCEX is a bilateral organization of American Cultural Centers (ACCs) throughout China. These centers are located on university campuses and are jointly managed by American and Chinese Universities


Education Programs

The ACCs create programs, outreach activities, exhibits, lectures, and performances that foster a deeper appreciation for American society and values by thoughtful exploration of the nuances and complexities of American life.


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.
