Communist Party of China (CPC)
The JI student branch of the CPC was founded in September of 2006 with 7 members. Thanks to the guidance of JI and SJTU, the student branch has flourished. Every year, a couple of student applicants are selected as members of the organization. Due to JI’s different academic calendar from SJTU, the student branch has changed the traditional way of holding the general meeting and proved that it is practical to receive new members through internet, for which the student branch won SJTU’s Distinguished Achievement Award for innovating party management. As of 2013, there are members in JI’s CPC student branch. Most of the members have succeeded in applying for graduate study abroad.
