L. Max Nikias.USC U.S.-China Institute, founded by President Nikias in 2006, was created to garner public discourse of the evolving U.S.-China relationship and key trends in contemporary China.“As the world tilts from the Atlantic to the Pacific, the work we do at USC and in Los Angeles takes on increasingly critical importance. The university is a vital intellectual and cultural link to the Pacific Rim,” Nikias said. “USC is clearly uniquely committed to building bridges of study and opportunity with China.”The university has made efforts to foster the U.S.-China relationship through the USC Pacific Asia Museum, the Viterbi School of Engineering’s Global Academic Initiatives, and the Marshall School of Business Global Leadership and Learning about International Commerce programs.Given China’s increasing prominence, the university has selected Shanghai to host its 2015 USC Global Conference next year. The conference will focus on digital media and business development.In light of the July 2014 murder of Xinran Ji and the April 2012 murders of Ming Qu and Ying Wu, the Chinese Students and Scholars Association worked with Dr. Ainsley Carry, vice provost of Student Affairs, to create additional safety measures on campus to protect international students. The changes, which were implemented this August, included increasing the number of cars and drivers in the university’s Campus Cruiser program. According to Carry, there has been a 50 percent increase in Campus Cruiser usage since August, and students have seen shorter wait times than ever before.Garcetti applauded efforts by the Los Angeles Police Department and the university’s Dept. of Public Safety to increase campus security.“I, as mayor, take your safety incredibly seriously. One act of crime is too much. And while we can never get to a place where there is zero crime in the city, we are going to try and get as close as we can to that,” Garcetti said. “This will be a Pacific century, and you will help lead it. I hope you will consider Los Angeles as your home.”First-year master’s students in the Price School of Public Policy Debby Zhong, Katherine Wang and Lu Tian expressed gratitude for the university’s new safety measures and welcoming attitude toward international students.“I think USC’s location is really perfect. The faculty in the Price School has been really fantastic,” Zhong said.“When I was studying in London, we didn’t really have the same environment … There was no sense of Trojan Family like there is at this university,” Wang said.
