Abstract:

The major purpose of this study is to determine how training programs in the U.S. liberate the minds of young cadres from Chinese government. From1998 to 2010, at the request of the Guangzhou Municipal Government, Dalian Municipal Government, and Shanghai Metropolitan Government, the China Institute at California State University, Northridge, successfully implemented “New Century Leadership Training Program” for 12 groups and a total of 154 young cadres/administrators from various governmental agencies, social and cultural organizations, economic and public health entities, and higher education institutions in China. All of them have returned to China upon completion of their half-a-year to one-year-long study programs at CSUN and assumed important and higher leadership positions. Based on the research model of professional socialization by the senior researcher (Su, 1993, 1994, 1996, 2003, 2004), we assume that some fundamental changes have taken place in the minds of these young leaders from China. Since the summer of 2004, we have traveled to China to visit these former CSUN scholars and conducted a follow-up survey study with representative former scholars. We obtained valuable data on 1) the scholars’ reflections and feelings about their learning and living experiences in the U.S.; 2) impact of their study in the U.S. on their mind-set, world outlook, and thinking process; 3) changes in their professional work and personal life in China as a result of their training in the U.S.; and 4) impact of the Chinese scholars’ presence in the U.S. on American people and society. We found that the most fundamental and lasting change for these young leaders occurred in their mind-set and thinking process, which has significantly influenced their administrative work and daily life, gradually affecting the development and reform in China. Therefore, their study abroad experience is a special liberating process.
