Molly Bodurtha joined the National Committee as a program assistant in June 2017 after graduating from Williams College with a B.A. in Asian Studies and Philosophy. While providing logistical support for a broad range of the Committee’s programs, Ms. Bodurtha focuses on facilitating and designing components of the Committee’s Congressional Staff Delegations to China, the Young Leaders Forum, the Diplomat Orientation Program, the Student Leaders Exchange to China, and the Sino-American Dialogue on the Rule of Law & Human Rights.

During college, her interest in the fields of Chinese politics and international law led her to study for one year at Oxford University, write for the Williams Journal of Foreign Affairs, and participate in the Kaplan Institute of American Foreign Policy, based at Williams. Driven to encourage political engagement among students, she also established and presided over a political debating union on campus called The Williams Forum. Molly has extensive experience studying, living, working, and volunteering in China, beginning in high school when she studied for one year at Beijing Middle School No. 2.
