strategic global partnership between the two top universities in US and China, University of 
Michigan (UM) and Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU). The Chinese Government and 
both partner universities are fully committed to develop JI as a world-class institute for 
engineering education. During the past years, JI has developed tremendously and achieved 
extraordinary accomplishments, such as “First-Class Award for National Education Reform” 
(2009), “Model of Chinese Higher Education Reform” by Chinese State Council in 2011, and 
“Model for International Education in Shanghai” (2012). In 2014, JI was the first Chinese 
institution to win the prestigious Andrew Heiskell Award for Innovation in International Education,
one of the highest honors in international higher education. In a short time, JI has set a successful
example for Sino-American educational collaboration in China, which has made a great impact 
on other Chinese universities.
In June 2012, SJTU and University of Michigan signed a 10-year (2012-2022) agreement on 
strategic collaboration, laying a solid foundation for further Sino-US education cooperation.
