Xing Wei College


In a bold bid to experiment with western education methods, a Chinese college modeled after American liberal arts institutions receives its first class of students this fallThe New York Times reports.
Xing Wei college, a privately run institution in Shanghai, is the first of its kind in China.
The college represents a divergence from traditional Chinese education, which is widely criticized for emphasizing rote memorization and stifling creating thinking.
Weiming Chen, a Harvard-educated investor and founder of the college, said he wanted to cultivate a crop of students who could think in new ways.
"We want students who have the courage to pursue their desires, to know what they really want; that's different from the traditional definition of top students," he told the South China Morning Post.
