Chinese MPA students lend skills to US local government agencies

May 6, 2014

KPCC-FM Southern California Public Radio featured an internship program at the USC Price School that lets Chinese students lend their skills to local government agencies. The Center for Asian Americans United for Self-Empowerment provides the program. The story noted USC has the largest international student population in the country. Chinese students find themselves acting as translators for city officials being visited by Chinese delegations, translating materials for the League of Women Voters, and monitoring polls or working phone banks.
