Peilei Fan, an associate professor in the Urban & Regional Planning program at the School of Planning, Design and Construction, was selected by the National Committee on United States-China Relations as a member of the sixth cohort of its Public Intellectuals Program.
The PIP, which is funded by Carnegie Corporation of New York, was launched in 2005 and identifies outstanding members of the next generation of American China specialists.
It is designed to enrich the fellow’s understanding of policy-making processes in both the U.S. and China, help them establish useful relationships both with their academic colleagues and with policy practitioners, encourage them to move beyond the confines of their own disciplines and nature their ability to engage with the public at a national, regional and local level.
The program offers unique opportunities for professional development, mentoring by senior scholars, networking and exposure. Activities include seminars in Washington, DC and San Francisco, a story tour of China, opportunities to participate in National Committee delegations as scholar-escorts, and public education initiatives.
For the next two years, Fan will serve on the committee to engage on a variety of issues related to U.S.-China relationships.
“I am honored to be selected to serve the committee and hope to contribute in my capacity and represent MSU well. I also hope to serve the related public education initiatives,” she said.
