From 1981 to 2015, the National Committee administered a program on behalf of the U.S. Department of Education to bring delegations of educators and educational administrators from across China to the United States. Twice each year, participants selected by the Chinese Ministry of Education had an opportunity to learn about the strengths and challenges of various aspects of the American education system and its institutions and organizations. Supported by the Department of Education and the Ministry of Education, these trips, along with the reciprocal visits of American educators to China under the auspices of the Fulbright-Hays Seminars Abroad, strengthened educational ties between the United States and China.

Cities visited by recent delegations and the themes of the visits are below:
