In May, a ShanghaiTech delegation headed by President Jiang Mianheng visited a group of American institutions of higher education. President Jiang met with presidents from Yale University, MIT and Drexel University and exchanged ideas with leadership members from University of Pennsylvania and University of California, Berkeley. He met and talked with renowned scholars and professors from University of California-Los Angeles, California Institute of Technology, Stanford University and Harvard University.
President Jiang, on behalf of ShanghaiTech, signed a number of agreements with US universities after in-depth discussions. This trip helped to consolidate collaboration between ShanghaiTech and US universities in student exchange, joint research and faculty development.
