University of Michigan - Shanghai Jiao Tong University Joint Institute


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.
