China Center Hosted Chinese New Year Reception

On February 5, 2016, the University of Minnesota China Center hosted its Chinese New Year of Monkey Reception on Twin Cities campus. About 100 guests including China Center Advisory Council members as well as faculty, staff, alumni, and community leaders attended the event. University Regent Michael D. Hsu and Associate Vice President and Dean of International Programs Meredith McQuaid co-presented the “University of Minnesota Distinguished Chinese Alumni Award” to three alumni - Shih-Paul Yen (M.S., 1969), Calvin Changquan Sun (Ph.D., 2000) and Ruilin Li (J.D., 2001). A total of 140 Chinese alumni have received this award since 2014 when the University celebrated its 100th anniversary with China.

As our special guest, University Regent Michael Hsu (6th District) shared his life journey from a Chinese American Gopher family. He graduated with B.S. in Electronic Engineering from the University of Minnesota in 1988 and his father came to the University of Minnesota from China in 1948 to pursue graduate education in aerospace engineering. He brought the best new year wishes from the University of Minnesota Board of Regent to our thousands of Chinese alumni who graduated from the U and now live in the U.S. and overseas.
