About the University of Michigan - Shanghai Jiao Tong University Joint Institute
The University of Michigan - Shanghai Jiao Tong University Joint Institute (JI) was founded in 2006 as a joint force between the University of Michigan and Shanghai Jiao Tong University, two top universities in the US and China respectively. The mission of JI is to establish a leading international research institute and to educate innovative future leaders. JI has discovered an innovative way to build a first-class international institute in China within a short time through international cooperation. In 2011, JI was named the “Model for Chinese Higher Education Reform” by the Chinese State Council; in 2014, as the first Chinese university, JI won the prestigious Andrew Heiskell Award for Innovation in International Education.
