NYIT Opens Center for the Humanities and Culture in Nanjing, China

Nanjing, China (Oct. 13, 2011) — New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) has been awarded a $100,000 grant by the U.S. Department of State and the American Embassy in Beijing to establish and operate a Center for the Humanities and Culture in Nanjing, China.

The result of a partnership between NYIT and Nanjing University of Posts and Telecommunications (NUPT), the center will offer education and cultural enrichment that complement NYIT’s academic offerings in Nanjing.  It will include an expansion of the popular “English Corner” in the NYIT-Nanjing building, creating a comfortable area with the feel of a library.  

The center, which will be staffed by a director, associate director, and student aides, plans to bring in keynote speakers at least once a month, host regular movie nights, and offer English-language media. It also will support conferences on film, language, and literature.

NYIT President Edward Guiliano, Ph.D., a noted literary scholar and expert in global higher education, delivered the center's first lecture today on Poetry for Engineers: The American Educational Model.

“It is a privilege to be part of a project that enhances friendship and cultural ties between the United States and China,” Dr. Guiliano said. 

For more than 12 years, NYIT has maintained a presence in China through its programs, sites, and alumni base. Since 2006, NYIT has offered undergraduate degree programs communication arts, computer science, electrical and computer engineering, and international business administration in at the NYIT-NUPT campus in Nanjing.
