In Fall 2018, President Shirley Ann Jackson, Ph.D., together with Rensselaer Alumni Association (RAA) leadership and renowned faculty, paid a weeklong visit to Shanghai and Hong Kong. The trip was part of an ongoing series of international trips designed to strengthen engagement with our alumni and alumnae, build relationships, and forge new partnerships with companies and institutions.
During a series of special events, Dr. Jackson and the Rensselaer team met with more than 125 alumni and alumnae from the expanding RAA Shanghai Alumni Chapter, and more than 60 alumni and alumnae from the RAA Hong Kong chapter. These events included special certificate presentations to each chapter and leadership.
The successful visit was due in large part to the generous sponsorship support and participation of Rensselaer Trustee Mr. Jackson P. Tai ’72, and Mr. David Chin-Hoo Ho ’86, Rensselaer Hong Kong Alumni Chapter President. Thank you to both of these leaders for your continued dedication to Rensselaer.
We hope you enjoy some images (below) from the event.
