Chinese Chapter

The CAA Chinese Chapter is a descendant of the Chinese Student Club formed over 100 years ago to help ethnic Chinese students overcome social and economic barriers while attending UC Berkeley. It is one of the oldest chapters of CAA's chartered chapters. We continue to give scholarships to students and sponsor events for alumni.

The Chinese Chapter sponsors the annual Berkeley China Summit.

CAA Chinese Chapter is an official sponsor of the Berkeley China Summit (BCS), an annual conference held at UC Berkeley every fall with the mission to highlight Berkeley’s strengths and to encourage bilateral discussion and collaboration between US and China. Organized and sponsored by official UC Berkeley alumni and student organizations since 2016, BCS is dedicated to connecting Chinese and American businesses and investors with the technology, engineering, and business innovation expertise on UC Berkeley campus and across the Bay Area.
