The University of Minnesota School of Nursing and the Peking University Health Science Center in China signed a 10-year agreement for cooperation and exchange to promote wellbeing in China and the United States. Leaders from Peking University and the University of Minnesota participated in a virtual signing ceremony in October.

Areas for potential collaboration include exchange of faculty members and students, joint research activities and organization of joint conferences.

“Thank you for this opportunity to partner with you,” said Dean Connie White Delaney, PhD, RN, FAAN, FACMI, FNAP. “We are both resonating with the ideas of how we can cooperate in research and foster the growth of PhD education. We are honored to partner with you.”

Dean Shaomei Shang, PhD, said that while she is hopeful to meet face to face, in the meantime exchange can occur remotely. “It is great that we can work together,” said Shang.

In addition to the agreement with Peking University Health Science Center, the school also recently signed agreements with Pal College of Nursing and Medical Sciences in India and Hanoi Medical University in Vietnam.
