Inside China

MSU has a long history working with China and seeks to build innovative partnerships with Chinese institutions. More than 300 visits were made to China by MSU faculty in 2018-19 alone.

We are especially proud of the growing alumni base in China. MSU aims to inspire deeper engagement with China and new collaborations that advance knowledge discovery and support the Spartan community in China.
