We have been working with a number of schools and universities globally by investing in facilities that serve their educational missions.
Penn Wharton China Center-
Opened in 2015, the Penn Wharton China Center (PWCC) represents a substantial commitment by the Wharton School and the University of Pennsylvania to advance a long history of engagement with China in an increasingly interconnected global environment. The PWCC supports programs and collaborations among and between Penn’s 12 schools and many academic, government, and business partners throughout China, including faculty and student research, student experiences in Penn’s Philadelphia campus and China, and programs and resources dedicated to enhancing connections among alumni and friends in the region.
The Wharton School of University of Pennsylvania+
Endowed professorships allows the Wharton School to support outstanding faculty members and deepen its longstanding commitment to world class teaching and research. Professorship funds help Wharton cultivate excellence from within the School’s faculty ranks and retain such exceptional faculty, while recruiting the brightest scholars from across academia and industry. These faculty members serve as experts in their fields as well as outstanding teachers to Wharton’s ambitious students who serve as the next generation of leaders.
High Point University+

The Eagles’ Nest: An Outdoor Learning Laboratory
The Eagles’ Nest is a nature reserve and garden on the SAS Pudong campus. This learning space includes water features, planting beds, spaces for play and refection, as well as an outdoor classroom. Plants and animal life in the Eagles’ Nest are labeled with QR codes that allow elementary school students to examine and identify the species. The Eagles’ Nest has provided youngest learners with the opportunity to learn and grow in a natural setting.
The Teaching Kitchen
Over the past few years, SAS has focused on transforming its learning environments to better support collaborative and interdisciplinary opportunities their students. In particular, these new spaces for DREAMS encourage opportunities for study in Design, Research, Engineering, Art, Math and Science. The Teaching Kitchen is part of this DREAMS initiative.
The Teaching Kitchen is a key feature in the newly renovated early childhood wing of the elementary school on Pudong campus. This new learning space is the perfect size for the young chefs to explore culture, math, art, and science through cooking and food. It is a fully outfitted kitchen, complete with multiple stovetops, sinks, and ranges at elementary student and adult heights. It boasts elementary student size workstations for food preparation, as well as a host of technology to support student learning. The Kitchen was intentionally placed near the Eagles’ Nest to allow the students the ability to grow their own herbs for use in their projects.
