The Ricci Institute strives to approach Chinese-Western interaction in the spirit of friendship and respect exemplified by the Institute's namesake, Matteo Ricci, the 16th-century Italian Jesuit who lived in China. The Institute promotes interdisciplinary academic research through publications, scholarship programs, and community outreach events. It also provides access to library and archival materials in Chinese and Western languages with a wide range of materials on the history of cultural interactions between China and the West.
