SPEA Attending NASPPA 2017 Conference

During October 11 to 15, 2017, SPEA Dean Liu Xiaobing, MPA center director, professor Yuwei and vice professor Li Huiping attended NASPPA annual meeting in the United States. NASPPA annual meeting is an annual meeting of colleges and universities about public management, public policies and public affairs. It represents the international standard of public service education and has been focusing on assuring and improving the quality of education in the field of public management for a long time. This time SPEA attended the meeting and made two reports, which to a large extent improved SPEA’s international influence and played a role in helping SPEA getting international certification.


SPEA representatives attended the breakfast seminar about NASPAA certification standards between 7 o’clock and 8 o’clock in the morning of October 12. In this discussion forum, David Birdsell, the chairman of NASPAA, gave a speech about the standard of authentication. He restated the importance of the discussion forum which was stated in our school at September. From 9:15-10:15, SPEA gave a keynote lecture. In Oct. 12, we discussed with relevant personnel who knew well about authentication.



On the morning of Oct. 13, SPEA organized two panel at the same time from 10:15-11:15. Professor Yuwei discussed the experience SHUFE had in International certification at the panel whose thesis is Cross-national issues with NASPAA/COPRA accreditation: adapting on both ends.



Professor Huiping Li introduced SPEA’s measure to push the international education and proposed the challenge we faced at the panel named Internationalization challenges and initiatives of public affairs education in the global context: form a comparative perspective.
