Our Mission: The CFCE promotes cultural border crossing through the encouragement, development, and facilitation of culturally engaging activities that have as their goal the bringing together of diverse individuals and points of view.


To these ends, the Foundation will (a) develop its own programs that promote intercultural collaborations and the exchange of ideas and people and (b) support students, educators, and others in creative cross-cultural endeavors including international travel and study, research, cultural immersions, internships, and original projects. In its undertakings, the Foundation is largely interested in student-centered ventures that engage Asian and Western perspectives.
