ABOUT THE CHINESE STUDIES PROGRAM at Sidwell Friends school
The Chinese Studies Program at Sidwell Friends is funded in part by the John Fisher Zeidman ’79 Chinese Studies Endowment and the Dora Chao, MD, Endowed Fund. The program offers courses in Chinese language and history, grants for student and faculty study abroad, Zeidman Fellowship opportunities for Sidwell Friends alumni, an exchange student program, and the annual Memorial Lecture. Students are also aided by the Nancy Levy Zeidman Gift for Student Experiences, which invites a new generation of students to experience the wonder of China, and the Ida Fisher Zeidman Resource Center, located in the Richard W. Goldman Memorial Library, which houses more than 2,000 books and journals on China.
This design is a traditional Chinese seal representing John Zeidman’s name in Chinese characters. It has been adopted as the insignia of the Sidwell Friends School Chinese Studies Program.
