Building a legacy for their children and for Minnesota, Bob and Kim Griffin created an endowment fund at the China Center to establish the “Bob and Kim Griffin Building U.S.- China Bridges Lecture” since 2001. The Griffin’s substantial gift reflects their commitment to promoting the mutual respect between the two cultures and their passion to connect people to China.
China 100 was a yearlong celebration honoring the first students from China since 1914 and the wealth of connections that have come since. This celebration honored the past and took a look forward at the engagement between the University of Minnesota and the Greater China.
