A SFU delegation led by Vice President Chen Jingying, paid a visit to partner universities in the United States and Canada in early January, 2016 to develop and enhance the partnership.

During the visit to the American Economic Association (AEA), the delegation, with SFU recruitment team, worked on the recruiting strategy based on new competition and increasing number of tenure track applicants this year. When visiting Long Island University (LIU), Vice President Chen held a fruitful talk with LIU President Dr. Kimberly R. Cline and Vice President Dr. Jeffrey Kane, and Dean of LIU College of Management Dr. Rober Valli and other LIU participants. The two sides signed the MOU and agreed to carry out 3+1+1.5 program, joint degree program, staff and student exchange, and joint seminars.
