Huamin Research Center
The Huamin Research Center was established in 2012 through collaboration between the Huamin Charity Foundation and Rutgers University, and is based out of Rutgers School of Social Work. The Center’s mission is to develop and disseminate knowledge through research and exchange that promotes professional development of nonprofit organizations and strengthens individual, family, and community well-being in China.
We achieve this through research and exchange:
We promote mutual learning and the exchange of information between the United States and China through conferences, workshops, training programs, visiting scholars, and book translations.
The Center cooperates with a number of major Chinese and American universities and research institutions and we have a strong network of partners. Through these collaborative efforts, we contribute to the development of China’s nonprofit sector. In addition, we provide fellowships to doctoral and master’s degree students who are studying nonprofit and social welfare issues in China.
Each year the Center hosts several Chinese visiting scholars. In doing so we hope to encourage international scholarship on topics related to social development in China, and help train future nonprofit leaders and public servants.
