The article describes the management of academic departments in Beijing, The People's Republic of China. Academic departments in China have parallels with academic departments in the U.S. but there are marked differences. Key differences between the Chinese and U.S. systems deal with professors serving as role models and the selection of who will work as professors. Teachers in China are expected to serve as role models in moral, as well as academic, development.
