A food safety factory shutdown has Americans hunting for baby formula. Readying themselves for a covid-19 lockdown, Chinese in Beijing emptied store shelves. Emerging from lockdown, some in Shanghai are visiting well-provisioned markets. U.S.-China agricultural trade is booming, but many are still being left hungry. Food security, sustainability and safety remain issues.
USC Global Fellows Heading to China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong
Twenty-three USC students from eight different schools will complete a variety of fellowships in summer 2008.
The Global Fellows program began in 2000 and is administered by the USC Office of Student Affairs. For 2008 and 2009, the program received financial support from a Freeman Foundation grant. The program provides students with the opportunity to get hands-on work experience in major Asian centers. In 2008, USC students will be working, often under the supervision of USC alumni, in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, and Taipei, as well as Tokyo. USC's offices in Asia and the Shanghai Alumni Club worked with Student Affairs in arranging these internship opportunities.
