Chinese media gave prominent coverage to our meeting July 1 with State Councilor Liu Yandong (刘延东). Madame Liu praised Michigan’s cooperation with the Ministry of Education and Chinese universities, including Peking University and Shanghai Jiaotong University. The considerable planning that went into this meeting paid off as the high-level discussion was a success and a very important step in UM’s continuing efforts to build relationships in China.

President Coleman was accompanied to the meeting by Professor Ken Lieberthal, Deans David Munson (Engineering) and Terrence McDonald (LS&A), Professors Jun Ni and Mary Gallagher and UM China Initiatives Coordinator Jen Zhu.
