The James and Margaret Tseng Loe China Studies Center Fund promotes cross-cultural understanding and cooperation between traditional Chinese culture and American constitutional democracy and technology. This cooperation, further strengthened by the vital principles of Christianity throughout human history - peace, caring and faith - will serve as a foundation for world peace and well being of mankind.
With deep gratitude, the China Studies Center Fund is dedicated to the memory of Professor James Loe and Mrs. Margaret Tseng Loe for bestowing upon and /instilling in their five daughters the great national heritage, of America and of China. They taught their daughters the American ideals of freedom, equality, and democracy. They also passed on to their daughters the basic Chinese values of the four cardinal moral principles: Propriety Filial Piety , Integrity , and Self Respect ; Along with the eight basic ethical virtues: Loyalty , Filial Piety , Benevolence , Love , Trustworthiness , Righteousness , Harmony , and Temperance . They led their daughters to understand that the foundation of true peace - within oneself or among nations - rests not in the power of conquering others, but in the conquering of one's self through these basic ideals and values.
