Prominent Chinese Communist Party Members Serve on Board of Yale Beijing Center - Truthhurts

Posted: Jan 11th, 2022 - 1:34 pm

Two prominent members of the Chinese Communist Party serve on the board of Yale University's academic center in Beijing, which hosts a series of events that defend Chinese government initiatives.

Fu Chengyu and Zhou Wenzhong, who have served on the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, sit on Yale Center Beijing's advisory board alongside Chinese business leaders, a former U.S. trade representative, and a former U.S. ambassador to China. The Consultative Conference is a major hub of China's united front system, which carries out foreign influence operations for the Chinese Communist Party. Fu formerly served as president of Sinopec, the Chinese state-owned energy behemoth. Zhou served as China's ambassador to the United States until 2010.

Yale maintains questionable ties to China even as U.S. intelligence officials warn of the regime's aggressive efforts to influence American universities. FBI director Christopher Wray has warned of China's use of "nontraditional collectors [of intelligence], especially in the academic setting." The Department of Education has investigated numerous schools, including Yale, for failing to disclose funding from China and other foreign countries.

Yale says the Beijing Center, which opened in 2014, acts as "a liaison to initiate and support exchanges with Yale's Chinese partners in academia, business, government, and other sectors." The Ivy League school boasts of having a relationship with China that is "deeper than any other university" in the United States. In the years since its launch, the Beijing Center has hosted numerous events and workshops that tout Chinese government initiatives.

The three Americans who serve on the advisory board—former U.S. trade representative Carla Hills, former ambassador to China Clark Randt, and insurance magnate Maurice Greenberg—are all known for supporting closer ties between Washington and Beijing.
