We have developed lasting, collaborative relationships with schools like The University of Pennsylvania, Duke University, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, University of California at Berkeley, University of California, Los Angeles, University of California, San Diego, and University of Southern California.
In recent years, JESIE.USA has completed high quality teacher training program named as “2,000 Education Professionals Project” dispatched by the Department of Education of Jiangsu Province. Participants are drawn from 13 municipalities and some prefecture-level cities and counties across the province. The provincial educators have built a high-level education exchange platform for China and the United States. They are able to obtain first-hand educational information in the United States, primary education experiences, and first-hand teaching experiences to further improve the education quality of the province’s educators.
JESIE.USA’s guiding principal is “integrating international resources and promoting Jiangsu Education.” Its aim is to “improve the quality of education and build a brand of Jiangsu Education” and its mission is to “promote Chinese culture and enhance Sino-US exchanges.” Moving forward, JESIE.USA will continue to promote and expand the influence of Jiangsu education in the United States, and at the same time further contribute a solid force to the improvement of basic education in Jiangsu Province.
