In an effort to further their existing institutional engagement, the USC Sol Price School of Public Policy and the Organization Department of the Shenzhen (China) Municipal Committee signed a letter of intent on Sept. 4, 2012 to enhance exchanges and explore new forms of mutually beneficial cooperation.

Faculty and administrators from USC and the Price School were in attendance to host the delegation of senior government officials, which was led by Dai Beifang, head of Shenzhen’s Communist Party human resources department and the president of the Communist Party University.

Since 2006, the Price School has provided continuing education and civil service training programs for high-ranking public servants from Shenzhen in key subject areas such as public management and governance. In total, USC Price has held six training programs, most recently on Sept. 24.

USC Price Dean Jack Knott opened the visit, welcoming the delegation and expressing his enthusiasm to advance collaboration between the two institutions.

“The Price School strongly values the opportunity to work with high-ranking civil servants from Shenzhen — to exchange ideas and to share our research and knowledge on critical issues involving economic development, social construction, governance and public administration,” said Knott, who signed the letter of intent on behalf of USC Price.

Other speakers from USC included: Anthony Bailey, interim vice provost for global initiatives, who spoke about the university’s global initiatives and specifically its engagement in China; and Joanna Yu, project director of the USC-Shenzhen collaboration.

Additionally, in spring 2011, 24 Price graduate students, led by Senior Fellow Mark Pisano, collaborated with the Shenzhen Public Administration Institute on the Price School’s international lab. Together, they worked closely with Shenzhen faculty on industry innovation to raise the air quality in the Pearl River Delta area. The Price students stayed in Shenzhen for two weeks to conduct the field study, receiving support with data and instruction from their Shenzhen colleagues. Several papers were published as a result of their collective work.
